Top 10 Balloon Activities for Kids

Top 10 Balloon Activities for Kids - super cheap way to have loads of fun!   #balloon #fun #kids www.couponingtobedebtfree.com

Here are some really cool balloon activities that you can do with kids (and the kids at heart) that won’t break your bank!

Have you ever seen a kids eyes NOT light up when a balloon is around! A balloon is fun all by itself! They are bright, colorful and are a blast to play with indoors or out. They float and fly and even make funny little noises when blown up and let go without tying them. They are a favorite with young and old alike so I decided that we MUST find some great balloon activities to keep the kiddos entertained for hours!!

Balloon Painting – Blow up a balloon (it can be small or large) and dip it into some kids washable paint and create a wonderful masterpiece! You can use different shapes and sizes of balloons and even have the kiddos stand on a chair and drop the wet balloon onto poster board. Just make sure you do this one outside or you may have a painted living room on your hands. :)

Deflated Balloon Pictures – Carefully try drawing a picture onto a blown up balloon using a ball point pen. Do not tie the balloons shut but rather just squeeze the opening real tight while drawing. Once the drawing is complete let the air out of the balloon and see how your picture looks now!! Re-inflate it again to see if it looks the same. This balloon activity can be done in reverse also just draw on a balloon that is not yet filled up…. then blow it up to see how it changes.

Simple Science Project Balloon Static Electricity – A totally awesome activity is one we often did as a child. Rub a blown up balloon into your hair and try seeing if it will stick to the wall or ceiling. If you have problems getting your hair to create static try grabbing a fuzzy wool scarf and rubbing the balloon with it. Tear up some pieces of toilet paper or Kleenex and see if your balloon will grab the pieces from the floor! Once your child learns to create static electricity they will be entertained for hours, just watch out because they might start shocking you!

Fill a Balloon – Fill a balloon with anything that you can find around the house. Some ideas that you could use would be shaving cream, coffee grounds, beans, water, rocks, and even hair gel. These awesome sensory balloons are great for using with kids that have a sensory issue but are great for any child and pretty much any age. Let them play around with them for a few days and when they start getting bored with them make sure you take some time to poke a hole in them and see how the liquid or dry ingredients come out. Water will stream out but what will coffee grounds do?

Water Balloon Toss – Some people cringe at the thought of a water balloon fight so we have put a little nicer spin on it and called it a toss. Stand about 1 foot apart from each other and toss the balloon back and forth to see if you can catch it. Then step back another foot and continue to do so until the water balloon gets dropped.

Balloon Bomb Painting – Fill a few water balloons with liquid paint. Place a large piece of paper or an old sheet on the ground and throw the balloon bombs onto the paper and watch the colors fly!

Sink or Float – Fill a kiddie pool up with water (or do this in the bath tub) and blow up a few balloons. Place the balloon in the water. Does is sink or does it float?? After your child figures out what it does have them try and push the balloon down with their foot, hand or their whole body. Can they keep it under?

Hold a Balloon Puppet Show – Grab your puppet theater and get ready to put on a show! Grab a few balloons and draw on some cute little faces, tape the balloons to some popsicle sticks and use them to make a puppet show!! You can even glue on some cool looking hats or clothes to make it even more realistic!

Balloon Stomp – Balloons are pretty fun in general and every kid loves to pop them!! Well maybe not every kid… it may scare the young ones but older ones have a ball seeing who can pop them the fastest or who can pop the most! If it’s too hard for you child to use their feet then try having them sit on them. Make sure they have clothes on or long pants because every once in a while the balloon will get ya! Ouch!

Fishing for Balloons – Last but not least on our fun list of balloon activities is fishing for balloons. Blow up some balloons and place them either in your bathtub or a wading pool with water in it. Have the kids use a strainer or a pan to scoop up the balloon “fish”. It’s a great time to work on counting and also to try and “catch” certain colors of balloons. It sounds like an simple enough activity but I guarantee the kids will love it!

Do you have any fun balloon activities that you do with your kids?
