Pool Noodle and Balloon Challenge

Outdoor $
Party Games, Relationship Building, Family Game Night

Activity Overview

Challenge family members to a fun family game that uses pool noodles and balloons. This game is intriguing to watch, as the instructions and the competitive nature of any contest reveals a definite struggle in the task at hand. Just how do you pick up balloons and deposit them in a laundry basket using only a pool noodle? Watch players as they eventually use their noodles to either come up with an innovative solution or they realize that teamwork works best of all.

When teammates join forces instead of acting as individuals the process is swift and easy. This is a great relationship building game which encourages cooperation and patience. Players will learn that when they put their noodles together, they can accomplish so much more.

Materials Needed

  • Pool Noodles
  • 2 Laundry baskets
  • Bag of Balloons

How to Play

  1. Place two laundry baskets on the ground.
  2. Blow up and tie off a bag of traditional sized balloons.
  3. Hand each player a pool noodle and divide up into two teams.
  4. Challenge the players to pick up as many balloons as possible and place them in their team's basket before the allotted time expires. Players must accomplish this using only their pool noodles.
  5. When the time is up, count the number of balloons in each basket and the team with the most balloons successfully added to their basket wins the game.
