Back Balloon Burst

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Pairs of scouts race to burst their balloon using their backs only.


1 balloon per pair of scouts


Put scouts into pairs back to back in a line. Put an inflated balloon between the backs of each pair. On “Go!” scouts have to push together to try to burst the balloon. The first pair to burst the balloon wins. Any pair that drops its balloon is out.
Back Balloon Burst Variations: If you have loads of balloons you can play with the last pair to burst their balloon going out in each round, until you are left with just one pair which will be the winners.
