GAME 2: PLAY FILL THE CUP
Have each player hold a plastic cup and stand on opposite sides of a sprinkler. The object of the game is to be the first to fill your cup. The trick? You must catch all that water without moving your feet. If your feet do move, you must dump the water on your head and start again.
GAME 3: PLAY SPRINKLER FREEZE TAG
While you dance or run around the sprinkler, crimp the hose or turn off the faucet. Then turn the water back on to signal that all the players must freeze in place. They can’t move a muscle until you turn the water off again. Anyone who moves is eliminated. The last player left wins the game.
Here are some tips for staying green when playing in a sprinkler:
- Play late in the day when the sun won’t evaporate the water so quickly.
- Place the sprinkler near the trees or flower beds so they’ll be watered as well.
- Set shallow pans at the outer edge of the sprinkler’s reach to catch water for birds and other wildlife.
- Move the sprinkler to a new spot every time you play.
