4. Back to Back Race
This activity requires partners in pairs. Have two kids stand back to back and hold a water balloon between them. Then they have to go head to head with another set of kids and try to make their way to a designated finish line. If they break the balloon, they have to start over but if they make it to the end they win!

5. Musical Water Balloons
Remember old school musical chairs? This is one step better (and wetter!). Place water balloons in a circle, and remember to use 1 less balloon then there are children (just like one less chair in musical chairs). Then have kids walk in a circle to some music. When you turn off the music, everyone needs to find 1 balloon to sit on. Last person without a balloon is out!
6. Big Balloon Challenge
Most of the time, we parents are the ones stuck filling tons of balloons. But you can actually make a game out of filling them up! If your kids are old enough, create a challenge in which the person who makes the biggest balloon without bursting, wins! Simple and hopefully you’ll end up with a few whopper sized water balloons at the end.
