Get Active: Balloon Stomp

Friday 3rd August 2018

The concept of this game is to burst everyone else’s balloon whilst defending your own. Give each young person a balloon and a piece of string about 50cm long, get them to blow up the balloon, tie it off and tie the balloon to their ankle. The balloon must be trailing on the floor with at least 20cm of string between the ankle and the balloon. On the word ‘Go!’ its everyone for themselves, players can only burst someone else’s balloons if they have an intact balloon. Every time a balloon is burst that player is out and must go and sit down. The last player to be attached to an intact balloon is the winner. If a balloon deflates slowly or comes unattached to an ankle that player is also out.

To speed up the game, when there are less players reduce the playing area. You could also play this game in teams, giving players different coloured balloons to indicate which team they are on.
