Number of Players: 2 or more
Age of Players: 8 and above
You will need: two large tubs (preferably see through), cash notes and coins, towels for cleaning up.
Prep: Fill the tubs 3/4 full with water and place cash notes and coins to the same value inside each one of the tubs.
How to Play:
Players compete to stand behind their tub with their hands behind their backs and use only their mouths to fish out the cash notes and coins from the tubs. That means dunking their heads in the water and getting soaking wet! When the time is up the player that has the greatest value of cash from the tub is the winner and gets to keep the money they won.
1. Use only one tub and have the players compete using the same tub, replace any money that is taken from the first player.
2. Relay: Have teams compete against one another. Teams line up behind each tub and a whistle is used to indicate the time to switch to the next player in the team to begin playing.
GENEROSITY: The ‘Cash Dunk’ game is all about getting as much cash as you can. But did you realize that someone had to put all that cash inside the tub to begin with? That took some generosity to give away all that cash! (Proverbs 11:24-26)
GREED: It’s so fun to watch everyone in the ‘Cash Dunk’ game get soaking wet! Yet the game makes us think about what people will do for money. People can be greedy for money! (Proverbs 28:25)
MONEY: The ‘Cash Dunk’ game is a quick reminder of what our attitude to money should be. Rather than grabbing for more and being self serving with our money, we should learn to use it wisely and not be afraid to give it away. (1 Timothy 6:10)
TREASURES: Some people might think that the cash from these tubs was worth a lot. It’s easy to look at money and think that it is the most important thing. Yet the bible teaches us that what we treasure and see as treasures is very important. (Matthew 6:21)
