Type/Purpose: Obstacle Course/Race/Relay, Outdoor, Water
Enough squirt guns for each person
A plastic bucket to hold the squirt guns
A set of very large shirts and pants (to put on and take off). One set per group
In groups of five or more, stand in a line. The first person in the line puts on the shirt and pants, takes them off and hands them to the next person. The next person cannot put the clothes on until the shirt and pants are off the first person. Each participant must put on and take off the clothes and when each person in the group finishes the whole group goes to its bucket. Each group member takes a squirt gun and empties it out on the members of their group, only in the face! The first group to empty its guns is the winner. Winners get to keep the guns and also receive a bag of candy.
Teachable Moment: In this game, students take off the “old self” and put on the “new self,” conveying that as Christians, our spiritual journeys begin with Baptism (Matthew 28:19, Colossians 3:9-10).
