Sailing Party GamesSandcastles
Fill a small plastic kids pool with sand and scatter in different sizes of containers for kids to make sandcastles. In the center place a bucket full of water so they can make the sand wet. For older children (over age 3) give them marbles, coins or plastic jewels to decorate the castles.
Fill a large rectangle container with water (about 2 inches from the top) and place a floating plastic sailboat in the center. On each of the containers sides tape a piece of yarn or string about 4 - 5 inches from the containers ends. Two players line up at opposite sides of the container and use squirt guns to try make the sailboat touch the other persons string. Have smaller containers of water at each side so they can refill the squirt guns during the battle.
Before the party begins make at least 5 islands out of poster board that are about 15" square. Decorate them so that they look like islands. During the party ask the sailors to use the island pieces to sail across the sea and back. You can break them into teams for a relay style race or have them use teamwork and play the game all together. They sail across the ocean using only the 5 islands by placing the islands on the ground, standing on them and then moving the back island to the front and then they all move forward and the process repeats. If they step off the island into the ocean then the whole team has to go back to start and begin again.
