Dissolving Necklaces Game
for each scout:
- alka-seltzer tablet
- 18-inch string
- plastic baggie
Poke a hole through a tablet and thread it on a string. Tie to make a necklace.
This game is for hot summer days and can be played in shallow water, on a beach, or anyplace where there is a water supply.
Participants should wear swimsuits.
Each scout puts on their necklace and fills their baggie with water.
When the judge says, "GO!" everyone tries to spray the necklace of other scouts while keeping their own necklace dry.
The tablets will dissolve when they get wet. When a scout's tablet dissolves, he is out of the game and goes to a designated area.
Can play in teams or each man for himself.
If not at a beach, the water supply should have a boundary around it inside of which is a free-zone for filling baggies. Also have a rule against staying in the free-zone for too long.
By partially closing the baggie, it can shoot a good stream of water.
