Are You Ready for the Summer? - Greased Watermelon
One of the fun parts of summer is the greased watermelon. The fruit floats lazily in the water but when you apply a slippery substance to it such as cooking grease. It becomes next to impossible to handle. Now have a bunch of children jump in the water and try to hold on it. One version of the game is to have teams try to push it toward a imaginary goal line. The version we played was "no holds barred." I became quite rough. But after all was said and done, the reward of sweet juice cold watermelon going down to your belly was awesome. And who cares that juice and grease got all over you? Just jump in the lake and wash it off. Yummmm!
