Give everyone a balloon and a piece of string or yarn. Have them blow up the balloon and tie it to their ankle. Then announce that they are to try to stomp out other people’s balloons while keeping their own safe. Last person with a blown up balloon wins.
Note: Be sure to have some guideline regarding the length of the string that the balloon is attached to. You don’t want the balloon so tight against someone’s ankle that it doesn’t touch the ground, and you don’t want anyone to have a four-foot string either.
