1.BALLOON HOPPERS
Objective: Four teams race to see how many balloons they can get in their bags before the music stops!

Game Type:Active. A lot of movement may be required.

Players: 6 or more players.

Needed: A large area and lots of balloons of various colors.Four large plastic bags. Fun party music. Rules: Set up: Four teams in four corners with their plastic bag and balloons in the middle, jumbled up.

Rules: Divide everyone up into teams and decide who from each team will be the bag holder.After that, assign each team a color balloon. Now, make up a funny way to get the balloons into the bag, for example,bouncing the balloon onto one's head until one reaches the bag.Then, start the music. Everyone will run to the center (except the bag holder) and pick up one of their team's color balloon and do the silly action until they get to their team's corner. The bag holder puts it in the bag. If a kid drops a balloon and it touches the ground, they have to go to the middle and start over. After a few songs,stop the music and tell the bag holder for each team to count how many balloons are in the bag. The team that has the most balloons, wins.
