There is nothing more fun than...balloons for adults and kids. Why not spice up your backyard gathering with a classic balloon game or two?
Blow up the balloons and tie one with string to each person's ankle. When you say "go", everyone tries to pop the other people's balloons. So you must both pop other balloons and protect your own. Last man standing with a balloon still in one piece wins.
WATER BALLOON TOSS
Fill a couple buckets with filled water balloons. Have each person grab a partner, space them evenly apart and toss the balloon back and forth. After each toss, the person who tossed must move back a step. They are out with the balloon breaks.
WATER BALLOON FIGHT
Make teams, give each team the same number of filled balloons and say "go". Watch the fun begin!
Blow up a balloon, make teams and play balloon volleyball over a net. Add multiple balloons if you want. The goal is to keep the balloons from hitting the ground on your side or the other team gets a point.
Pass out balloons and say "go". The first person to blow the balloon up all the way and then pop it, wins.
Add some creativity to the mix. Buy the long balloons and have a contest to see who can make the best looking animal or other object.
