You will need
- And a place to play
Step 1 Buy balloons Buy balloons. Look for medium-size ones that won’t break too easily. Plan on a few dozen for each player.
Step 2 Fill balloons Fill the balloons with water, and tie them shut. Place the filled balloons into buckets.
Filling balloons with water can take a while; ask friends to help.
Step 3 Play water balloon dodgeball Try playing dodgeball, only with water balloons. Divide your group into teams and stand facing each other.
Step 4 Start the game When the signal is given, everyone starts throwing their balloons at the opposing team.
Step 5 Earn points When someone is hit, the other team scores a point.
To make it easier to keep score, you can have individuals face off against each other, one-on-one, taking turns throwing.
Step 6 Finish the game Play until all the balloons are gone, the members of one team have all been hit, or a certain number of points have been reached.
Step 7 Use the leftover balloons Once the official game is over, everybody can grab the leftover balloons and throw them at whomever they want.
Step 8 Clean up Pick up all the burst balloons. Leave the space clean for next time!
