Waddle

Player have to maneuver back and forth with a balloon between their knees.
Supplies
Balloons and/or water balloons
Treats inside the balloons (optional)
Setup

1. Designate a starting and finishing line on the play area.
2. Have multiple blown up balloons. At least 2-3 for each child (or team if you are holding a team relay race).

How to Play

1. The first person is told to put the balloon in between their knees.
2. On “Go!” that person has to "waddle" to the finish line and back without breaking the balloon.
3. First person to make it back wins! Or, if you are playing with teams, the first team to complete the “waddle” wins!

Variations

1. Place a little treat inside the blown-up balloon from the original game. When players make it to the finish line they have to pop the balloon by sitting on it to retrieve the prize inside.
2. Instead of blow-up balloons, use water balloons! Placed under the chin, or between the knees, players have to “waddle” back and forth.
