Balloon Batting Buddies   Balloon Batting Buddies Game   Scout Game

This Game is meant for Cub Scouts.
1 balloon for each pair
1 2-foot string or rope for each pair (optional)
Mark Start and Finish lines.
Pair up all scouts.
Each pair blows up and ties their balloon.
Each pair links left to right arm at the elbow - or you can tie their left to right wrists together with string.

The object is to bat the balloon back and forth while racing to the finish line.

On "GO", one scout on each pair picks up the balloon and bats it to his partner who bats it right back.
Scouts can not hold or palm the balloon.

If the balloon falls, one scout can pick it up but the pair may never unlink arms (or break string), or take any steps while holding the balloon.

To make it more difficult, connect left wrist to left wrist which makes a 'net' over which the balloon must be batted each time.
Or, connect right wrist to right wrist which makes them use their normally less accurate left hands for batting.
