Balloon Tennis


A few weeks ago we had a blast playing made up indoor sports until our ball broke a vase and abruptly halted the fun. We decided to prevent this from happening again, but instead of banning our cherished in-house games, we designed Balloon Tennis.

This exercise blends arts & crafts and physical activity in a seamless way. Gather your little ones around and help them design their own sports equipment. Once finished, hold a fun and safe indoor balloon tennis tournament. We highly recommend designing and making medals and trophies to add even more fun to the mix.
