How to Play: Water Balloon Volley
How to play: Divide the children into two teams, and then pair up team members. Give each pair a beach towel. Each player will hold two corners of the towel. One pair begins by putting a water balloon in the center of their towel. That pair will toss the water balloon to a pair on the opposing team, who will try to catch the water balloon with their towel.
The rules: If you don't have a volleyball net, you can divide the two teams by pacing off a distance between them. Players will volley the water balloon back and forth until a pair misses the water balloon, causing it to break. This gives the opposing team a point.
How to win: The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
What else you need to know: To adjust this game for younger children, use sheets or blankets instead of beach towels.
