5 Minute To Win It Games You Can Play on The Lake

Here are 5 fun Minute to Win It games to play on a calm lake or boat with minimal rocking:

13 Things to Consider When Packing Your Cooler For The Lake

  1. Beach Ball Bonanza: (Great for all ages)
  • Materials: Beach ball, bucket for each player
  • Gameplay: Players stand on the edge of the boat. When the timer starts, they toss the beach ball up in the air and try to catch it in their bucket. Most catches in one minute wins! Make it harder by using a smaller ball or bucket.
  1. Life Preserver Relay Race: (Active and Fun)
  • Materials: Life preservers (one per team)
  • Gameplay: Divide players into teams and line them up at the stern (back) of the boat. At the start, the first person on each team puts on a life preserver, jumps overboard (safely!), swims around a buoy or designated point, takes off the life preserver, swims back, tags the next teammate, and so on. First team to finish wins!
  1. Coin Stack Challenge: (Requires focus and balance)
  • Materials: Shallow bowl with water, 10 coins
  • Gameplay: Players sit on the boat. When the timer starts, they use one hand to carefully pick up a coin from the water-filled bowl and stack it on another coin without dropping any. Most stacked coins in one minute wins!
  1. Fishing Frenzy (using a spoon): (Tests dexterity)
  • Materials: Empty plastic bottles weighted with water or sand (standing upright), spoons, string (tied to each spoon with a loop at the end)
  • Gameplay: Attach the string with the loop to the boat’s railing or a secure spot. Scatter the weighted bottles in the water around the boat. When the timer starts, players use the spoon to try and hook the loop on the top of a bottle and pull it back to the boat. Most bottles “fished” in one minute wins!
  1. Balancing Act: (Requires focus and a steady hand)
  • Materials: Ruler, small lightweight ball (think ping pong or small marble)
  • Gameplay: Players stand on the boat holding the ruler horizontally with their thumb and forefinger. When the timer starts, they try to balance the ball on the top edge of the ruler without using their other hand. Most time balancing the ball in one minute wins!
