What you need: You need buckets, water, and a large sweatshirt for each team.

How to play:
Divide the children up into equally numbered teams. Players should be wearing clothes they don't mind getting wet. Establish a starting line and a line approximately 20-30 feet from the starting line. Place a bucket filled with water for each team at the starting line. Each team gets a sweatshirt.

The rules: At the starting signal, the first person on each team will dunk the sweatshirt in the bucket of water, put the sweatshirt on, run down the field and back, take the sweatshirt off and tag the next player. Play continues until all players have raced.

How to win: The first team to complete the race is the winner.

What else you need to know: For a variation of this game, you can add sweatpants to the race.
