Game description

For this game, you will need a small water bath. Before the game even starts, the container plus water is weighed. Next, a plastic bag is placed into the water, and one competitor has to try to inflate the same. The objective is to raise the water level and force the water to overflow.


The winner is the child who can displace most water. Therefore, it is important, that you always weigh the water. This will make it much easier to determine a winner at the end. However, if it is not possible to weigh the water, put the container in another container and then measure how much water spilt from one container to the other.
