The game is just like the game of chase, except every student will skip instead of run. One student is designated as "it." The student that is "it" tries to tag the other students with the foam ball. Once tagged, the student is out of the game until a new game begins. Each student has to skip instead of run to play the game.

Each team member skips to the next teammate in line until all students have a turn skipping with the water balloon. The team that finishes first without dropping or popping the balloon or running wins.
