What you need: You need a swimming pool, balloons, and a t-shirt for each team.

How to play:
Divide players into two to four teams of four to eight members. Give each team a large t-shirt and blown-up balloons.

The rules: At the starting signal, the first person on each team will put the t-shirt on, take one balloon, and jump in the water. Once he is in the water, he has to put the balloon under his shirt before he can swim. Once he has the balloon under the shirt, he must swim to the other side and back. If the balloon pops out, he must return to the place where the balloon came loose and start over. Once he makes it back to his team, he will take off the t-shirt and pass it to the next player. Play continues until all players have gone.

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

What else you need to know: The balloon tends to pop out depending on how it is placed, either in the front or on the back. Let players choose where to carry their balloon, and the whole team will see the advantages of balloon position as they go.
