Form a Bucket Brigade
Divide kids into two teams, and have them form two lines. The first person in each line passes a full bucket of water to the person behind her, then runs to the back of the line. This continues until the teams reach an end zone, say, the edge of the lawn. The team with the most water left in their bucket wins!
