What You'll Need:

  • One black balloon per child
  • Red string or ribbon

  1. Inflate each balloon and knot it closed.
  2. Tie a 2-foot piece of red string or ribbon to each balloon.

At the Party:

This game is best played in an open space indoors.
  1. Tie one balloon on a string loosely to each child's ankle.
  2. When you say "go" the children should try to stomp and pop each other's balloons using only their feet. Tell them they are diffusing bombs!
  3. If a child's balloon is popped, that child is out.
  4. The last child without a popped balloon is the winner!

Alternative Play Ideas:
  • Place wrapped candy or small toys inside each balloon before inflating. When a child's balloon is popped, they get their prize! (This insures everyone is a winner.)
  • Make the strings shorter for younger players or longer for older players.
  • To make the game last longer, give the players a balloon for each foot.
