Water Games for Kids


Spoon Spill

When you spill water on your favorite drawing, it's no fun. But in the spoon spill game, when you spill water spoon by spoon onto a piece of construction paper, it's a race to the wettest! Sometimes, soggy rules supreme!

What You'll Need:

  • Teaspoons
  • Dark-colored construction paper
  • Paper cups

Each player gets a teaspoon, a paper cup of water, and 60 seconds.

Whoever gets their piece of paper the wettest from a distance of three feet in just one minute wins the game.

But remember, no fair tossing your whole cup of water. The idea is to win this race one spoon at a time.

One hint: Be sure to use construction paper. It shows (and absorbs) water better than other kinds of paper.
