Wacky Waiter Game

Wacky Waiter Game is a very nice outdoor relay game to organize when the weather is nice outside… Holding a plastic tray similar like a waiter does, the player must run with a glass filled with water on the tray to the turn around point and back to the start line to tag the next teammate who continues to do the same. If a player drops the glass, they must return to the starting line and start all over again.

Wacky Waiter Game rules

The principle is simple and you will need 2 trays and 2 glasses as material. You will need plastic dishes or a dinette, something made of unbreakable material… You will also need water to fill the glass if one falls to the ground.

Form 2 teams of homogeneous composition.
Make a mark to delimit the start and finish line.
Tell each team to stand in single file behind the start line. Give the child in the first position of each team a tray and a glass filled with water.

Each child will have to make it to the finish line and return to give the tray to his or her teammate as quickly as possible.
Be careful, if the glass falls on the ground, the adult will fill it again and the child will have to start again at the beginning of the course.

The first team whose members have all completed the course, and who therefore finished the race first, wins the relay.
