Balloon Stomp Game
Small Balloons - 3 per scout
String - 2 foot lengths
Blow up all the balloons very full so they are easier to pop.
Tie a string to each balloon.
Mark off a safe play area with a circular rope.
Tie a balloon to each scout's left foot.
Everyone tries to stomp all the other balloons.
When your balloon is popped, you leave the play area.
Last one with a balloon wins.
If played indoors, play in stocking feet to make smashed feet less of a problem.
Have patrols play as teams to see which patrol is left. Even if you do not spell this out, it is good to have a very short reflection to discuss if it was fun, if there was any teamwork going on, what strategies worked.
In this, as in almost all elimination games, if a patrol works together, they tend to have a better chance at winning.
