    Hydration Station

    As your party heats up invite your guests to cool down at a Party Peacock-style Hydration Station. Party Peacock pitchers have colored lids to perfectly pair with flavored waters. Tie a printable flavor tag to each pitcher with a bow and your coordinated water service is absolutely refreshing.

    Simply add fresh fruit to iced water. Try watermelon and berries in the red pitcher, mixed citrus slices in the yellow, cucumber and mint in the green, and pure water in the blue. Guests can choose their favorite way to stay hydrated. Serving water is essential, and with Party Peacock it’s never been so fun and easy.

    The Great Relay Water Race

    Just add water and watch the summer fun skyrocket! Play this Party Peacock game with party tubs and tumblers and the grins are guaranteed. Divide into two teams and see which team can transfer the most water from one tub to the other - relay style. Watch out, you may get wet!

    What You’ll Need:

    • Party Peacock Small Party Tubs – four tubs, two for each team
    • Party Peacock Small Tumblers – one for each player
    • Water – enough to fill two tubs

    How to Play:

    1. Divide into two teams and give each player a cup. It doesn’t matter how many people play as long as the teams are even.
    2. Each team forms a line with a “START” bucket at the front of each line and an “FINISH” bucket at the end.
    3. Space players two to five feet from each other. The farther apart they are the harder the game will be.
    4. Fill the start buckets with water.
    5. On “Go!” the first player on each team fills his or her cup with water from the bucket and pours it into the next player’s cup. Then the second player pours the water into the next player’s cup, and so on until the last player dumps it in the empty finish bucket.
    6. Repeat until the start bucket is empty and all the water has been transferred to the finish bucket.
    7. Compare the finish buckets. The team with the most water wins!
