What can you do with a couple of balloons?
(Ideas are welcome!)
Not to worry – I’ve put together a list of 30 things to do with balloons!
A favorite of ours is balloon badminton!
I blew up a couple balloons and the first thing we did was play Balloon Badminton!
I put together two rackets with paper plates and Henry’s drumsticks.
I just scotch taped them on. We did have a couple instances of them falling apart.
You could use paint stir sticks, paper towel holders, or anything long and sturdy! (and staple them instead of using scotch tape!)
Henry and I didn’t make it a formal game of Badminton.
If you do, tell me your trick on how to make a preschooler do that…
But we did try a few things:
- Hit the balloon (hand-eye coordination)
- Keep the balloon off the ground (balance/steadiness)
- Hit the balloon back and forth to each other across the play table or other object (team play)
I rarely get pictures to share with you of Henry with a big grin on his face.
Every picture during this activity he has the biggest smile (the only problem I had was taking a picture while trying to hit a balloon!)
If the weather is cooperating – take this activity outside!
