Beat the heat at your next summer gathering with a game that requires fancy (and very silly) footwork.
First, divide players into two teams and have the members of each team lie down side by side, alternating directions as shown.
Place a bucket of water near the head of each line.
Have the first player on each team hold a large, soaked sponge with her feet. At "Go," the teams use their feet to pass their sponge down the line and back. If a player drops the sponge, he may sit up to recover it but can use only his feet to get it back into the game.
The first team to get their sponge into the bucket wins.
