Preparation: Plenty of water balloons, rope or chalk.
Make a huge tic-tac-toe grid outdoors using thick rope (or chalk if on pavement). Divide your group into two teams and place them in single file lines at least 25 feet from the grid. Each team takes a turn trying to get three in a row by landing a water balloon in an empty space. Once a player gets a space they must sit in the space to claim it for their team. This is a great summer game where kids can hit each other with water balloons without using them all in twenty seconds.
