Fill up lots of small water balloons and have fun with a water balloon relay. This game is perfect for a large group of people. Make two or more teams and create obstacles. Some obstacles could be to swing a water balloon to your teammates with a towel or to toss them underhand from a certain distance. Have a team member at the end of the relay with a basket on their heads to fill up with water balloons. After a certain period of time, whoever has the most balloons in their basket wins.
