Dancing with balloons
Type: active game, coordination game
Number of players: 10 or more
Location: flat floor
Equipment: balloons, lace, music
Duration: a few minutes
Preparation: none

Dancing with balloons is an active game for any number of participants (about 10 or more). You need a flat, clean floor where the participants can "dance".


Each participant needs:

  • one balloon
  • lace (yarn, etc.), to fix the balloon on the leg

Additionally, it would be great if you could play some music during the dancing.


The players inflate their balloon and use the yarn to attach it to their foot (leg). The balloon should be attached so it does not disturb while dancing, but is near the floor (so others can possibly step on it). The players then spread on the "dance floor".

Once the music has started, all players try to jump on the balloons of the other participant. When a player loses his balloon, he has to leave the dance floor. The last player with an intact balloon wins the game.
