Arranging a kids' party? Well, a cool summer party can't be complete without water balloons. Children, of any age whatsoever, love water balloon games. Definitely, the level of difficulty must be easier for toddlers compared to older school-going kids. With the right party games, you can have a party which each and every kid is sure to enjoy.
Water Dodge Ball
Draw a line, and divide the kids into two groups. Each group will have equal number of players and equal number of balloons. Let the kids hit players of the other team, and dodge those balloons thrown at them. The player who is hit with a water balloon is out. The team with most members left wins the game.
This is best for little kids and preschoolers. Make the children stand in a circle. Then, make a pin-sized hole in a medium-sized water balloon, just before kids start playing the game. Each kid will pass this leaky balloon to the next kid. Remember, keep passing till the balloon is flat, with no water left inside. The one who is left holding the flattened balloon is asked to sing or dance.
Filling the Balloon
You can have a competition of filling the balloons. For this, you need some water balloons, and a water source, like a tap or garden hose, to fill them up. This is a game suitable for elder kids. See who fills the maximum number of balloons in a duration of 5-10 minutes.
Water Balloon Catch
Divide the group into pairs, and give each pair a towel. Place a balloon in the towel of first team. As the game starts, it launches the water balloon in the air. Next team has to run, and catch this balloon in their towel and further launch it in the air. The team which catches maximum balloons wins the game.
This is a fun-filled game which all kids will surely love playing. Take oversize T-shirts, belts and water balloons. Make teams of 2-3 players each. Give each team an oversize T-shirt and a belt. Now, one of the players from each team wears this T-shirt and ties a belt over it, at waist. Each team must fill the t-shirt with the balloons. The team with maximum balloons inside the t-shirt wins. In case of a tie, count the number of balloons burst while placing inside the T-shirt.
Adding sprinklers for constantly spraying the kids, is essential to make these fun water games even more entertaining. So, get the water balloons, and let your kids enjoy to the fullest. Also, make sure that adults stay around while these games are played.
