Balloon Pop Game
Jeanette in Merritt, BC, Canada
Balloon pop game I cut up little squares of paper, enough for each person at the party. Mark 1 paper "Winner" and the rest "Sorry". I then roll up the papers into little scrolls, so there is no way to tell which one the winner is. I blow up a bunch of multi-colored balloons and place each scroll of paper inside. At game time, everyone gets to pick out a balloon. Then everyone gets a pin to pop it with. On the count of three, everyone pops their balloons and gets to open their scroll. The winner gets a prize! Maybe for younger children, they can pop the balloon by sitting on it. Quite often when I throw a party there are one or two kids that don't show up. So when I do the balloons up, I place the "winner" scroll in one color, and I make sure that there are no more balloons of that color in the bunch. That way if some don't show up, I take some of the balloons out to even it out. The kids love to pop balloons, so it is fun for everyone!
