Number of players: 4 and up. Make two teams. Each team chooses a goalie. Inflate a number of balloons before the game starts. A referee throws the balloon into the field. Players have to kick the balloon towards their goalie. Goalie has to catch the balloon and only the goalie is allowed to pop the balloon. The referee may throw more than one balloon into the game at once. The team whose goalie pops the most balloons is the winner. Variation of this game: use a balloon instead of a ball to play any ball games (soccer, volleyball and ext.). Try to play any of those games in... slow motion!
You can make a ball out of balloons. There are instructions to make a ball:
It is also fun to play ball games with a cube.
Number of players: 1 and up. Players take turn to pump the same balloon. Each player may pump the balloon once per turn. Choose who starts the game and follow. Pump a balloon until it pops! The one who pops the balloon is the winner (or the loser). Variation of this game: players attach balloons to their backs or hold balloons in hands. Pop your opponents' balloons! The last player that keeps his/her balloon intact is the winner. Variation of this game: inflate a pile of balloons and dump them in the center of a room. Let the players pop the balloons. The player who pops the last balloon is the winner (or the loser). Variation of this game: inflate a pile of balloons and instruct players to make one big balloon sculpture. Let them to pop it at the end.
Number of players: 1 and up. At the end of the party ask all players to find and bring all popped balloons. You should limit the time and the place where players can look for balloons! There are many variations as to who wins the game. It could be the player who finds the smallest/biggest piece of popped balloon or the first/ last player who brings the balloon or the player who finds the largest/ smallest number of balloons and etc. You may give special (balloons!) prizes to winners and to all players.
Have fun and happy twisting :)
