Solo Cup Water Race

Looking for a fun, simple and quick way to create some summer fun? Aren’t we all. This water cannon race is the perfect solution. All you need is a couple Solo Cups, string and something that shoots water!


How do I create a water cannon race?

The process is so simple you won’t even break a sweat.

First, punch a pea-sized hole in the bottom of two Solo Cups. The hole needs to be big enough that the cup can glide along the string smoothly.


Next, find two objects you can run your string between. Trees or deck posts tend to work really well. It’s even better if you can find one main tree or post that has two other options that are similar distances from it. That way you can create two paths to the same ‘finish line’ for your races.


Now all you need to do is slide on your cups and secure your string. Get ready to have a blast!
