My homemade game – Watery Pencil Race

I made this game up, an these are the steps. (4 players limit.)
1.Get at least 2 pencils. You need as many pencils as players.
2.Set sheets of paper all over a table until the table is covered.
3.Get four crayons. Blue, yellow, red, green. Each player takes one crayon and makes a dot at one end of the paper. Have them write their names next to their dots.
4.Wet the tips of the pencils with water.
5.Ready.. set.. go! Race the pencils across the table-and paper-to the edge.
6.Dry off the pencils and look at the paper.
7.The two with the wettest and widest paper streams go to the bonus round.
Bonus Round
1.Make sure the two winners have pencils with nothing on the erasers.
2.Have them each get a tissue and a rubber band or string of some sort and tie the tissue to the eraser.
3.If it is a rubber band, stick another tissue through it and wet one end. If it is a string, make sure it is hanging loose.
4.The two of them race the pencils. The straighter line wins!

And remember, with 2 players, there is no bonus round.
