baby—it’s HOT outside! so let’s cool off with a loads of fun water balloon ideas! water balloon roundup

first up>>>> fun things to buy that make water balloons easy peasy!

my faucet doesn’t work with the  adapter…and i don’t want to spend hours sitting on the ground on the side of my house filling them up…so i love this: photo 1 (22)

pumps your balloon up (with water or air) super easy! (i got mine at shopko…but i think they are at walmart as well!)

this russian roulette game looks soooo much fun!  you never know when the pin’s going to pop the balloon…you pull the trigger and if it doesn’t pop you pass it the next person! 71aGjltGSsL._SL1500_

love this idea! we always have a kid that cries cause they got hit to hard with a balloon…so focus their energies elsewhere! (i’ve also seen putting sight words or math and they have to splash the right one )

water balloon baseball….we just played this (we actually played kick ball) but first, second, and third base was a mini swimming pool…and then you had to go on the slip and slide to get home! splash-and-score-games-photo-420-FF0803COOLA08

if you have a big group you could use a sheet…but try a water balloon towel toss!

we also did an old school hand toss.. after each throw you have to take a step back–the ones that get the furthest apart without popping the balloon wins!

we used to play this all the time…a little trampoline action. each person has a color and you try to pop theirs without getting yours popped. the more people the crazier it gets!

do you remember the game 500? you call out a number and throw the ball and whoever gets it gets the points…first one to 500 gets a turn to throw the ball?
