Objective: Keep your team’s balloon from touching the ground.
Materials: Inflated balloons, one per group of 6-8 players
How to play: Divide children into teams of 6-8 players. Each team should form a circle with players facing inward and holding hands. Give each team an inflated balloon and on the signal “go,” all teams must keep their balloon from touching the ground until the leader yells “stop.” Players may use any part of their body to hit the balloon except their hands—they must hold hands with the person on each side of them. Give a point to every team that keeps their balloon from touching the ground for each “round.” Play as many rounds as you like. For an added element of fun, play music during play!
