Kid's Party Ideas - Balloon Party Games
Party Resource Guide
Presented by Event & Wedding Planners
Divide your guests into two equal teams in separate lines. Give the
leader of each line an inflated balloon.
At the sound of go they must try to pass the balloon in the air to the
next person in line without it ever touching the ground. When it reaches
the end person have them pass it back to the front. The first team to
get it to the front of the line wins.
Props: For each, a blown-up
and a tablespoon.
Each person places a balloon on a spoon
held between his teeth. Each dances toward goal line, keeping his/her
balloon on spoon. If balloon drops, he/she is disqualified. First person
to reach goal line with his/her balloon still on the spoon is the
Pass the Balloon
Players are in a circle.
They pass the balloon
to each other behind their backs, trying not to hold it for a long time
in their hands. Then after the signal the player who has a balloon in
his hands is out of the game.
Plenty of balloons
Construction Paper Shapes
Hide an assortment of party favors within a designated area. Write clues
on shapes cut out of construction paper about where a certain party
favor is located. Depending on the age group, you could either write
words or draw simple pictures. Roll the clues up and gently slip them
inside an unflated balloon. Blow the balloons up with air and hang them
on the walls for a decoration. When you are about to start the game,
have a child choose a balloon off the wall and pop it by sitting or
stomping on it (some children my need help).
Tell the children to use the clue to find the missing party favor.
Divide into teams and
have the kid's pass a
using only their knees.
Theme Balloon Relay
Split the guest into two teams. Each team is given a
balloon (butterfly, animal shape,
favorite character & etc). If you can't find a balloon to
match your theme, draw a picture on construction paper and
attach to the balloon or use a marker and draw picture
directly on the balloon. Stickers also work well.
Mark a start and turn line
about 10 ft apart. Each team member must bat the balloon in the air,
heading toward the turning point and then bat the balloon back without
letting it touch the floor (or ground). If the balloon touches the floor
the team player must start over at the starting line. First team to have
all players complete their turn wins. To help make it easier to see
which team is first, as a team player finishes their turn they go to the
end of the line and sit down.
