One at a Time

For this game, put children into groups of 2 to 4, with a single balloon per group. The object is still to keep the balloon in the air without letting it touch the ground, but kids have to take turns, in sequence, to bat the balloon upwards. They each get a chance to hit it up, then they must move to let the next person hit it and so forth while keeping the correct order of children. If the wrong person touches the balloon, or someone touches it twice, the game is over. For younger children, use pairs and encourage them to take turns.
