Balloon Race

(21 votes. Push a star to rate! )

Be the first to cross the line without dropping or breaking your balloon!

Number of participants: 3+
For: For kids over 7 years, youths and adults.
Intensity level: Medium
Preparations: Blow up balloons for each player.
Equipment: Balloons

Begin by blowing up one balloon for each player and determine a starting and finish line.  Each player begins at the starting line  and places a balloon between their knees. On the word “Go!” each player shuffles as quickly and carefully as they can towards the finish line. If a balloon breaks, that player is out of the game. If the balloon is dropped or slips from between the knees, the player returns to the starting line, places the balloon between their knees, and starts towards the finish line again. Players can walk, run, or hop just as long as the balloon does not pop or drop from the knees.  The first player to cross the finish line with the balloon intact between their knees wins the race.

*The larger and more blown up the balloon, the easier it will be to pop during the race.  Adjust this for the ages and abilities of the participants.
