A flood of tears

Blood is thicker than water

Break the ice

Crying buckets

Get your feet wet

Having a ripple effect

find itself on a spear.(Africa)

If there is a continual going to the well,
one day there will be a smashing of the
pitcher.(Africa)

It’s all water under the bridge

Jump in with both feet

Like water off a duck’s back

Little by little the cup is filled. (Spain)

Make a big splash

One hand washes the other.

Pull the child out of the water before you
punish it. (Africa)

Raining cats and dogs

Sink or swim

Somebody is all wet

Something smells fishy

heavy dew is the elder brother of rain.(Africa)

Took hook, line, and sinker

Treading water

Troubled waters

Wash my hands of the whole thing

Watered down

Wet behind the ears

Wet your whistle

When it rains it pours

the mountain. (Japan)

You are not the alligator’s brother, though you
swim well by his side.(Africa)

You won’t miss the water until the well runs dry
