How to Play: Cold Potato
How to play: Have the children sit in a circle outdoors. They will pass the "cold potato", or water balloon around the circle by tossing the water balloon from player to player. If a player does not catch the balloon or if the balloon breaks when he attempts to catch it, that player is out of the game.
The rules: If someone intentionally throws the balloon hard enough that it can only break in a player's hands, that person is also out of the game.
How to win: The last person who remains dry is the winner.
What else you need to know: To make this game more challenging for older players, have them spread out farther in the circle.
