Yeah, it’s her 8th birthday and we are throwing a birthday party again! This time we decided to go for a Balloon theme. At first, we thought balloons are just fun to look at and dance with, but after a little research, we realised there are endless possibilities for balloons fun and birthday games and activities. To our surprise, this party turned out to be probably the easiest and funniest birthday party ever.
The biggest hit was Bunch O Balloons Party, a small and super easy fun machine which can automatically seal balloons. It enables you to blow 40 Bunch O Balloons Partyballoons in 40 seconds. So we set a rule not to burst the balloons because Bunch O Balloons Party balloons are reusable and biodegradable, so we wanted to keep them to use for another party (Link).
Kids’ parties always need to have a few planned games or activities. Here are a few ideas that we have tested and can guarantee, the kids will be enjoying the party for many hours!
A Balloon Kids Birthday – we can’t guarantee it`s totally budget-friendly, eco-friendly, and it`s enormous fun! Kids can form teams or play as single players, you can moderate the party and help with instructions.
1. Blow balloons
This one is so simple and so much fun if you Bunch O Balloons Party and let the kids blow balloons by themselves just with one click (see video).
2. Balloon quiz
I have created my own Balloon Quiz Printable with fun and teaching questions and answers to test the knowledge of balloons in a fun way. The team or a child that answer is the most questions right is the winner.
3. Balloon juggle
The game aims to simply keep the balloon in the air and not let it touch the ground. This is a great game to play to loud, hilarious party music.
4. Balloon football
On your command, children attempt to hit and guide the balloons into their allocated goal with the use of their feet. Other players can try to defend their goal from the opposition and attempt to guide balloons away from opposing team players.
5. Pass the balloon
Players place a balloon between any part of their bodies and try to pass a balloon to one another without using their hands.
6. Balloon race
Kids start at the starting line placing a balloon between their knees and racing to the finish line without dropping or bursting their balloon.
7. Balloon back to back
2 kids work together to hold a balloon between their backs and race to the finish line without dropping or bursting their balloon as fast as they can.
8. Protect your balloon
Give each child and tie it to the string (1m long) and tie it around their waist (ankle). The aim is to protect their balloon while trying to grab (or bust) everyone else’s, with the winner being the last balloon standing.
9. Balloon spoon race
This game is much like the traditional egg and spoon race, but instead using large spoons and balloons.
