Solo Balloon Volleyball


We loved playing this so much in school the children have asked to play again.

We popped lots of balloons though!

Set up a ribbon to act as a net and blow up a balloon for a ball. Then challenge yourself to play volleyball—on both sides of the net! Hit the balloon up and over the ribbon, then scoot under to hit it from the other side, and so on until the balloon wafts to the ground.





Have a look at the ideas on the PowerPoint or get your own ideas from the internet and create a firefighter inspired piece of art. You could use a computer if you don’t have enough craft things at home or just draw a picture.
