Balloon play


  • Balloon kicking - children aim to keep a balloon in the air using only their feet, either on their own or in pairs
  • Can the children keep a balloon up in the air by hitting it with their hands? How many times can they manage before it hits the floor?
  • Give the children a cardboard tube. Can they keep their balloon in the air using the cardboard tube?

Be aware that children won't be looking where they are going when they look up to hit their balloons.
