Water Balloon Toss

3.5 stars

Supplies Needed: Water Balloons

Pair everyone up in two's. Have the group form two shoulder to shoulder lines with everyone facing their partner in the other line. Start the two lines only a couple feet apart at first. Give one water balloon to each person in one of the lines so that each pair of partners has a balloon.   When the leader says "Toss", the partner with the balloon tosses it to their partner. If they drop their balloon or it busts when they catch it, they are out. If they succesfully catch it without it breaking, they are still in.

The leader then asks one line step back to increase the tossing distance and says "Toss". The partner who caught the balloon now tosses it back.   Repeat the rounds until there is only one team left as the winners! Kids love this game! :)

A variation of this game is to use eggs instead of water balloons
