Kids love water balloons, its just a fact! So head to your local dollar store, pick up a pack of water balloons and keep the kids entertained for hours! Here are a few of our favorite water balloon games!

Towel Toss

  • Number of Players: 4+
  • Supplies: 1 towel for each team of 2, filled up water balloons
  • Object: To use the towel to toss the balloon to the other team (each player holds 2 corners of the towel), and to catch the balloon when it is tossed to you.

    Slow Leak

  • Number of Players: 2+
  • Supplies: a tack, water balloons
  • Object: To get wet
  • How: Use the tack to poke a hole in a couple of balloons, then fill with water and have one of the players plug the hole with their finger. Repeat and repeat again. Its best to fill up the water balloons outside! Have the players sit in a circle. When you say, "GO" the players pass the balloons around the circle until they are empty.


  • Number of Players: 2+
  • Supplies: filled water balloons, midway marker (rope/chalk)
  • Object: To pop all of the balloons before their opponent does
  • How: This is a twist on the balloon popping relay. Each team gets a pile of balloons. They must run to the midway marker and sit on their balloon to pop it and return to the starting point. Players can also hop, skip, or walk backwards to in order to mix things up.
