Blitz Games: Balloon Master

You will need:

  • masking tape
  • 60 balloons
  • 2 teams of 5 each

How to win:

attach the most balloons to your teammate

How to play:

Choose 2 five-person teams. Give each team a roll of masking tape and 30 balloons.

On “Go!” have members of each team roll the masking tape (sticky side out) around one of their teammates below the neckline. Next, have kids blow up their balloons as quickly as they can and stick as many as possible to the taped-up team member. You can end the game here and award the Balloon Master to the one with the most balloons attached in the time allotted.

Or, you can set up an obstacle course. When the balloons have been attached, have the player go through and back to their team. Balloons that fall off during the race can’t be re-attached. The team whose player has the most balloons still attached is the Balloon Master.
