Game description

This game is particularly suitable for the summer. If you have a large pool, you will have a lot of fun. But if that is not an option a bathtub or plastic container big enough will do as well. Now, each child has 60 seconds to put 10 corks into the water. The challenge is, the cork is not supposed to submerge in the water. – Best you divide the group into two teams.


The winner is the team with the most floating corks at the end. If the corks swim longer than 60 seconds the water, it gives extra points. If you can get more than 10 corks to swim, you get extra points once again. The game leader writes it all down and reveals the winner. Who will be king of cork boats?
