Balloon Hot Potato Game
6 or more balloons
slips of paper, pencil
Write messages on the paper, slip one in each balloon, and blow them up.
The messages could be like:
'Recite the Scout Oath'
'Tell the Scout Motto'
'Tell 3 components needed for a fire'
Or, any other questions about your theme.
The group stands in a circle. The leader has the balloons. One at a time, a balloon is passed from player to player around the circle, until the leader blows a whistle. The player holding the balloon when the whistle blows goes to the center of the circle and sits on the balloon until it pops. He reads the note and performs the action or answers the question contained in the message.
