Kids Party Game – Water Balloon Relay

balloon birthday game

 Age: 3+



  • Water Balloons
  • Large Spoons

Players: 4+

How to Play: Set up a course outside, marking a starting and finishing line. You can use a hose, cones or whatever else is easy. Then divide your players into teams of two or more. Each team will have to transfer 6 water balloons across your course using only a spoon. If the balloon drops or is touched by the player they must go back to the starting line. After a balloon is placed across the finish line successfully, that player needs to run back and tag the next teammate to try for the next balloon. Whatever team gets all of their balloons safely across the finish line wins.

More Challenging: Create a few obstacles along the way. Make them walk around cones, over buckets, underneath ropes, etc. You could also make them go blindfolded, with another teammate guiding their way.

The girls gave this game a 4. The first time they played with just a starting and finishing line, but they said that was too boring, so we added some obstacles. After we added the obstacles they had a lot of fun with it.
