If you love being outside in the summer and playing with balloons, then you’ll love our fun water balloon games that you can put together in just a minute. Play this game with a small group or large group. We love good water balloon games, and this one is so easy the kids will love it, and so will adults.
Fun Water Balloon Games
Summer is that much more fun with fun water balloon games. Join in the fun with classic water balloon fights and easily take turns throwing balloons or chasing each other until all the balloons are gone.
We added an easy twist to our water game.
- Water Balloons (Check the price for 350 rapid fill on Amazon here!)
- Black Marker
Tip: I love using the rapid-fill balloons. I want the easy-to-fill water balloons for my daughter’s birthday. They are much easier to fill and will ensure you have fun all day long.
How to Play Fun Water Balloon Games
Get ready to have an adventure with this fun water balloon game. You will need to mark each of the balloons with a number one through ten.
Tip: We recommend if you have a small group, mark the balloons 1-5 and a larger group 1-10.
After each balloon is filled and marked with a number, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc., the balloons are spread out over the playing field with the number facing up.
The game host will hold their left or right hand behind their back (or both) and pick a number presented on the balloons.
The players will then run to a spot with the number of their choosing. We allowed 1 player per balloon with a number.
That’s where it gets fun. First, the player who chose the balloon that matches the host’s number is holding up behind their back gets to throw the water balloon. Then, they can throw their balloon at whoever they choose to.
After that, the host will hold up a new number behind their back, and the game will continue until all balloons are gone.
It is easy, fun, and gives a water balloon fight at a birthday party, youth group, or camp something fun to do. My kids loved it. We hope yours do, too; if you haven’t seen these other games to play outside, such as Jenga, outdoor scavenger hunt, or this hilarious bigfoot game, we highly recommend it.
