Bouncing Balloon Tennis Game

Follow our game rules or make your own. Either way, you’ll improve your hand-eye coordination and have loads of fun! 

Suggested for ages 3 and up.

What you'll need: 

  • Kid tennis or badminton racquets
  • Balloon(s)


Blow up the balloons and take this activity outdoors. You can play by yourself or with as many people as you would like.

Game ideas:

1 player: Hold your racket so that the racket face is flat and bounce your balloon. Try to not let the balloon hit the ground. Count how many times you bounce the balloon and try to get the most bounces possible before it hits the ground!

2 or more players: Pass the balloons to each other to play a game of balloon tennis. Count one point for every time you hit the balloon without letting it touch the ground. The person with the most points wins!
