This game is just like regular dodgeball, but with water balloons instead of balls. Be sure to have plenty of balloons on hand so that everyone can have a turn throwing and dodging.
Water Balloon Hot Potato
To play this game, fill a water balloon with water and have the kids pass it around in a circle. Whoever is holding the balloon when it pops gets soaked!
Water Balloon Target Practice
Set up some targets and see who can hit them with their water balloons. This game is perfect for those competitive kids. For teenagers and adults you can see who can throw their water balloon the longest distance.
Balance a water balloon on a spoon and race to the finish line without dropping your balloon. To make this game harder, hold the spoon in your mouth!
Divide your group into 2 teams. Place some water balloons inside a hula hoop or draw a circle with some chalk to put the balloons inside. One at a time players must race down and try to pop one water balloon before running back and tagging their next team mate. The team who pops all of their balloons first will win. To make this more challenging, players are not allowed to use their hands or feet to pop the balloons.
Fill your bucket
You can play this game individually or in teams. Fill up plenty of water balloons and scatter over the yard. Give each person (or team) an empty container. Players must try to fill their container with water from the water balloons as quickly as possible. To do this, they need to find a water balloon and pop it, emptying the water into their container and continue doing this until their container is full or the time has run out. Players can only carry one water balloon at a time.
Water Balloon Tag
This is a great game for large groups. One person is “it” and has to tag other players with their water balloon. The more people you have playing, the more challenging this game becomes.
Water Balloon Fight
This is a great game for large or small groups and there really aren't any rules. Just fill up as many water balloons as you can and let the fun begin.
