How to play the Balloon Pop Relay game ?
This activity is super simple to put together and the kids absolutely love it. Here’s how to play: The moderator divides and lines up the kids into two teams. Put one chair out for each team – at the far side of the room. Every child on both teams should be holding a blown up balloon at the start of the game. On the moderator’s command, have one child from each team run to the chair, then sit down and pop their balloon, and then run back to their team and tag the next kid in line. The next kid runs to the chair, pops his or her balloon, runs back, tags the next student, etc. The first team to finish wins.
Note: This game can be made more difficult for older partygoers as required. If you really want to add some drama to the game, you can have the kids blow up and tie off their own balloons while the game is in progress – some kids may try to “cheat” a bit by not fully inflating their balloon, which makes it nearly impossible to pop!
