Never underestimate the potential fun in a simple balloon. No helium required.
I’m always amazed how long my kids can play with a balloon.
- Blow it up and don’t tie the end, then let it go and watch it fly, and laugh every time.
- How long can you keep it off the ground?
- How many times can you bounce it back and forth with a partner?
- Rub it on your head and stick it to the wall.
It's even better when the kids start to invent their own games involving pillow-jumping and hot lava, or balloon-eating monsters. Let your imaginations run wild!
