5 Gallon BucketHow to Play the “Bucket Tug of War” Game

Items needed:

  • 4 five-gallon buckets
  • two 15-20′ ropes tied in the middle
  • 4 participants

Have participants stand on the five-gallon buckets that have been turned upside down and place one end of the rope in their hands. Have them tighten up on the rope so there is no slack. For safety, it might be a good idea to have spotters around each participant. Some students are hard core (especially older students) and don’t want to lose so they will likely hold on to the rope while they dive head-first into the ground.

Last participant still standing on their bucket wins!
