Each team is given a balloon. Players hop to the goal line with the balloon between their knees. They can then take the balloon from between their knees and run back to the team. If a child looses the ballon on the way to the goal line, it may be picked up. Have extra balloons on hand for those which get popped!
a fun relay race. Each team had to spell out a word, in order, using letters that were attached to the balloons. Once a player found the letter they needed, they would remove it from the balloon and return it to me (I would place it on the board for all to see). Some of the balloons had blanks or silly pictures to make it a bit harder. Once the relay was done, each of the kids got to choose a balloon to take home with them.
