Water balloon pinata
This is a fun summery twist on the standard pinata game (and it doesn't involve sugar!). Load up some balloons, tie them up to make a water balloon pinata and you've got yourself a seriously fun party game.
What you need:
- a packet of balloons (standard ones work best)
- a piece of strong rope (about 3m)
- a stick
- water from the hose
- somewhere to string up your pinata (a clothesline or between two trees)
Number of players:
Fill your balloons with water. Prepare lots of them so you can keep "reloading" the pinata as more and more balloons get popped. Keep your prepared water-filled balloons in a laundry basket.
Rig up your main string, somewhere outside (of course.) We used two standard cup hooks screwed into two date palm trees and attached a piece of rope between them. The balloons will be heavy so allow for some weight to hang off your string.
Attach about six balloons at a time to the main string. Just use the top of the balloon and tie it on – it should hold just with a single knot.
Take it in turns to whack the balloons until they burst. (Make sure everyone stands clear while the whacker is whacking!)
