This page has a few ideas you can use today to grow with your kids. Some are just fun and some are a little more meaningful, but spending time together always yields great opportunities to grow!
What you need: Balloons! A jingle bell and a few shakeable items like rice grains, a Skittle, or any other shakeable things make a few more activities possible.
Balloon Volleyball Make a barrier in the middle of the room. You can attach a long piece of yarn to the walls or just line up some chairs. Choose teams and go at it!
Noisy “Keep it in the air” A variation on the traditional game where you keep the balloon from hitting the ground. Put a jingle bell in the balloon before you blow it up. This adds noise and makes it a bigger challenge. Work together to set your family record for the number you can get in a row.
Shake It! Put small items in three or four different balloons. I used rice, x, and x. Have your kids shake them, guess what’s inside, and then pop them to see if they were right!
