Balloon games are always fun, and this one is a classic birthday party game. Be aware that some children are scared of popping balloons, so it is a good idea to have a quiet activity that they can help you with without feeling embarrassed in front of their friends.
You will need:
Two large baskets or dustbin liners
Lots of over-inflated balloons
How to play:
Divide the children into two equal groups and line them up.
About 25 yards away place two large baskets or bin liners of inflated balloons. (Make sure you over-inflate the balloons to make popping easier!)
At the staring signal, the first two contestants in each team run to their basket and grab a balloon. They then sit on it until it pops! As soon as it has popped, they run back to their team and tag the next player in line.
The first team to pop all their balloons wins.
