Wet Sponge Relay

Wednesday: Wet Sponge Relay
Bible Lesson: Raised from the Dead
Memory Verse: 1st John 4:10
Indoor Variant:Indoor Fish Relay
Age Groups:
  • elementary
  • teens
Equipment Needed:
  • sponges (You can re-use the fish-shaped sponges from earlier in the week.)
  • buckets (4)
  • water
Divide the group into two equal teams. Each team receives a full bucket (of water), a (smaller) empty bucket, and a fish-shaped sponge. Team members line up and take turns running the fish sponge from the full bucket to fill the empty bucket, in an attempt to fill the empty bucket. If the full bucket gets empty, it can be refilled from a spigot. The first team to fill their empty bucket, or the team with the most water when time expires, wins the game.
Teen Variation:
Increase the difficulty by making them stand a little more than arm's length apart and toss the wet sponge from person to person down the line, trying to keep as much water in the sponge as possible; the last person in the line squeezes it into the bucket.
