Firefighter Relay




Equipment: Plastic or styrofoam cups, buckets




Put holes in the cups, making sure each cup has the same number and size of holes. Remember to space out the holes so that they cannot be easily covered. Place bucket of water on one side of the relay and empty buckets on the other side.

Divide the group into teams and send each team to line up behind a bucket of water. The first person in each line starts with the cup with holes in it and fills it up with water from the bucket, and runs to the empty bucket and dumps the water, then runs back and gives the cup to the next person in line. This can continue until the starting buckets are empty, a certain amount of time has elapsed, or everyone has ran a certain number of times. The team that filled their bucket the most wins.
