Water activities
(found on the internet)

Paul’s Charity Relay:
Two teams pass water in cups to team members behind them, pouring from over their head. The “charity” idea came about because they are sharing of their water to others.

Moses Parting of the Red Sea Tug of War:
Bring a “water jump rope” (a small hose with holes in it) as the “red sea”
Let the children run through the water.

"Moses Crossing of the Red Sea"
Tug of war over a blow up swim pool or sprinkler.
The winners were the Israelites, the losers were the Egyptian soldiers caught in the Red Sea.

Prophet Toss:
We got water balls (fabric balls with a sponge inside so they can get wet) and let the kids see how far they could throw them.
We put pictures of each of the latter-day prophets on dowels and stuck them in the ground at one yard increments. So the kids could say, “hey, I threw it all the way to Harold B. Lee!” We wrote their names and distances on a poster and then put it up at church yesterday for the parents and kids to see. The nice thing about this game is that it was actually quite educational. The kids were learning to recognize faces and order of the prophets and some of them wanted to know a little bit about the prophet they had thrown to.

Spencer W. Kimball’s Lengthen your Stride:
Pairs toss a water balloon to each other, backing up, or lengthening their stride, with each toss.

Jonah’s Go Fish:
We let them draw a floaty toy out of a swimming pool with a net and depending upon what they chose, they got a different color of candy.
Fill a small plastic pool with water and put marbles in it. Have the kids try to pick up the marbles with their toes.
