This week’s Active Saturday! game will get the kids going and is great fun over the festive period.
Mark out a grid and give each player a balloon. When the coach shouts, ‘go!’ the children need to keep the balloon in the air using all their body parts except their hands. If the balloon touches the floor or their hands, they are out. The winner is the person who can keep the balloon up for the longest!
If the game is continuing too long, the coach and another child can distract the rest of the group by getting in the way and knocking the balloons away. Alternatively, further restrict the body parts that can be used to keep the balloon in the air. For example, they’re not allowed to use their hands or head.
