Water games based on the "Game of World Records."

Sent in by Gabi F. (Church of St. Peter and Paul to Bergedorf).

The young people fight in five teams against each other. The groups will be established with the help of colourful water balloons. In each team contains 5 young people. On the wall on a large table, all competitions are listed. The order of the events can be defined by the teams themselves. Only the first and the last match will be contested by all teams at the same time. Each team has a contact person who analyses the results of the competitions and enters this in the table. Each result (except the first and last game) must be re-played for improvement once.

  1. Water bombs (drawn by the group) as quickly as possible water bombs are transported on a teaspoon from A-B.

  2. Who can “gargle” the most songs in two minutes?

  3. Water Bomb Throwing (3 attempts)

  4. Eat an apple in a bowl of water as quickly as possible.

  5. Throw an inflated water balloon back and forth over a distance of 5m until it bursts.
