Must protect my balloon and burst everyone elses


1 balloon and a 60 cm length of string per scout
Remove shoes

Game from


Blow up the balloons and tie one round the left ankle of each scout using the string. On “Go!” scouts have to use either foot to stomp on the other scouts’ balloons without their own being stomped on. Scouts can only stomp if they have an intact balloon. Every time a balloon is burst that scout is out and has to go and sit down. The last scout to be attached to an intact balloon is the winner. When indoors this game is best played with shoes removed. Balloons over-inflated burst easier.
Stomp Balloons Variations: Scouts can only stomp with their non-balloon foot. Play in teams.
