- Blow up one balloon per child.
- Throw the balloon up in the air and try to keep it off the ground using different actions (e.g. karate chop, tickle) or body parts (e.g. knees, elbows, fingers).
Safety tip: Dispose of balloons and balloon debris after use, as it is a choking hazard. A homemade balloon cover can be used to help with safety.
