Catch the Balloon

Type of strategy: CollaborationEnergizers and State ChangersMovementOpeners & Get to Know You

A name game using a balloon.


Stand in a circle.  Toss a balloon in the air and call someone's name.  That person must catch the balloon before it touches the ground.  If the person succeeds he/she then tosses the balloon up and calls the next name.

An extension of Catch the Balloon. Now the balloon is not caught, but kept in the air.  As well as calling out someone's name, also call out a body part which that person has to use to keep the balloon in the air until he/she calls another person's name and body part.
