Where only one person can usually take part in cup stacking, teams and groups can compete together in bucket stacking. Buckets are large enough so that students can only lift one at a time, which means the whole team with have to pitch in to create a pyramid or stack sequence. Verbal communication is needed to determine whose bucket goes where in the stack!
Buckets are also a great option in team relay races. Students will need to work fast to build or unstack a pyramid before they can move onto the next activity. For example, in a team relay game, one student might sprint 50 meters to the buckets, stack them, and tag another player, who must then unstack them all before sprinting to the next station to tag the next player.
Heavy-duty construction keeps buckets in top form for all of your games and activities. They won’t warp or break when stacked or collapsed, and the heavy duty plastic they’re made of will easily stand up to accidental drops. Buckets measure 8”H.
Holes in the bottom of buckets quicken the rate at which students can stack them. Air holes prevent air from being trapped between buckets, which can cause suction issues that prevent them from coming apart.
The Rainbow® colors of buckets add another dimension of fun and challenge to bucket stacking games. For example, having a predetermined stacking order for each color will force students to pay close attention to the pattern as they stack.
