Sometimes FUN doesn’t require large amounts of creativity!
We spent some quality family time this weekend playing with water balloons. The baby even got in on the fun, as one aimed at me via Daddy, splashed her in the face! She didn’t fuss… for too long!
We actually had the regular size balloons, which turned out to be perfect for a 5 and 3 year-old. They were easier for them to catch and didn’t pop as easily. We had fun playing catch and pairing off in teams, as just the splash was exciting enough for my boys.
Here are some fun games you can play with water balloons:
Catch and Step:
Play catch with a partner. Each time you catch it, take a step backwards. See how far apart you get.
Monkey In The Middle: See if the kid in the middle can stay dry!
Throw it up and call a point total. They’ll either catch it and win, or get soaked. Either way, you can’t lose!
Hide and Sort:
Hide the balloons for the kids to find, and then ask them to sort them in different groupings
What’s more fun than a good ole fashioned water balloon fight?
Do you have any other game ideas for water balloons? Please comment.
Until next time… Don’t get soaked! XO-Erica
