Our new favourite game- Balloon swatters!

This was an improvised game that turned out to be a real hit!

You will need:
Fly swatters- 1 per player (we had hand shaped ones from the pound shop!)
An inflated balloon

Hit the balloon with the fly swatters!!

We played 3 v 3 in a large space.  The object of the game was to get the balloon to touch the wall behind the opposing team.  It was fast moving and half way through we had to introduce the rule that you were only allowed to touch the balloon twice in a row.  The children loved it, played non- stop for 20 minutes and would have carried on if the leaders had had the energy!  They especially loved doing high fives with the flyswatters each time a goal was scored!
