Today’s Activity: Water Balloons – Still a Favorite!
What kid doesn’t love filling up balloons with water? The trick is keeping the kids from launching them at each other – and you. Organize a water balloon toss tournament by getting the neighborhood kids together. The older the kids, the larger the circle can be (so there is more room between each kid).The kids can throw the balloons to the player on their left, and when someone drops the balloon, they are “out.” You can also put kids into teams of two and have them throw it back and forth; the last team not to drop its water balloon wins. Anyone up for a game of water balloon hot potato? How about water balloon touch football? The sky’s the limit!
