River Crossing (Pool)
ONLY DO THIS if you have a pool wide enough that someone falling CAN’T hit the edge!
Play this with guys in the pool and girls on the side. Guys stand back to back as girls try to walk across their shoulders – holding guys outstretched arms for balance – to the opposite side of the pool without falling in.
If there are not enough guys to make a fully connecting bridge across the pool, then they have to slowly move from back to front of line in the pool to form a “moving” bridge. If you have enough students, you can play two teams against each other.
Safety Note: Have adults near edges of pool for safety, as well.
