Balloons are not only for decorations, you can come up with balloon ideas to play with.

Bouncing Balloon Contest

Perhaps the most obvious of ideas, but it can still keep the kids entertained! See who can keep their balloon airborne the longest. You may even want to offer a prize for the winner, just to keep their interest longer.

Balloon Races

We don’t have enough space in our back yard to do this, but you could host your version of a Balloon-inspired track meet.

Option 1: Each runner places a balloon in between their legs. Whoever gets to the designated finish line first is the winner! If you drop it, you have to return to the starting line.

Option 2: Place a bucket of balloons on one side of the yard. Each runner has to run to the balloons, grab one out of the bucket, and pop it (preferably by sitting on it) before running back to the starting line. This can either be done as a relay or as individuals. Repeat until all the balloons have been popped. Whoever pops the most is the winner!

DIY Stress Ball

There are many ways to make a stress ball using balloons, and I’m pretty sure we went with the simplest one. All you need is flour, a funnel, a small plastic bottle (or other similar container) and a balloon!

Insert your funnel into the top of the plastic bottle, and slowly pour in flour until the bottle is about half full. I’m guessing we used 1/2 to 3/4 cups of flour for ours.

Next, remove the funnel and blow the balloon up till it is about the size of your head.

Without letting the air out, stretch the open end of the balloon over the mouth of your bottle until it’s sealed.

Turn balloon and bottle upside-down so the flour exits into the balloon.

Once the flour is in the balloon, squeeze the end of the balloon closest to the bottle, and carefully detach it from the bottle. Then slowly (VERY SLOWLY) let the air out of the balloon. You’ll know that you’ve let enough air out when little puffs of flour start to erupt from the balloon. At this point, tie off the balloon as usual.

Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a silly face, so grab a Sharpie and turn your stress ball into a cheerful friend.
