Water Balloon Toss - at Night!
A family’s backyard is a haven for outdoor play, but the rising temperature on a hot summer NIGHT could make the kids STAY inside. Adding DARKNESS changes things. It is similar to the classic Egg Toss game. Instead of two kids tossing an egg back and forth, it’s a water balloon. Two kids (or groups) face each other about a foot apart. Begin by tossing the water balloon to each other. After each kid has a turn tossing, everyone takes a small step back and each kid tosses again. It will become harder to see in the dark with each step taken back. Play until the balloon breaks. If you have an odd number of kids, arrange the kids in a circle together and toss between players. It will be more of a challenge than a competition.
