Catch the balloon


Catch the balloon will have children calling out for more as they play this all time favourite birthday party game. Get your kids moving and laughing with this exciting kids activity and join in the fun too. This is a great game for all the family!

What you need:

  • balloons

Number of players:


Arrange the children in a circle on the floor and have them count up – eg the first child is one, the child next to them is two, and so on.

Put the highest number in the centre of the circle to act as ‘IT’.

‘IT’ holds a balloon and calls out one of the children’s number while dropping the balloon to the floor.

The holder of that number then tries to catch the balloon before it touches the floor. If the player is successful, ‘IT’ tries another number. If the balloon touches the floor then that player is ‘IT’.
