Water balloon pinata
This is a fun summery twist on the standard pinata game (and it doesn't involve sugar!). Load up some balloons, tie them up to make a water balloon pinata and you've got yourself a seriously fun party game.
What you need:
- a packet of balloons (standard ones work best)
- a piece of strong rope (about 3m)
- a stick
- water from the hose
- somewhere to string up your pinata (a clothesline or between two trees)
Fill your balloons with water. Prepare lots of them so you can keep "reloading" the pinata as more and more balloons get popped. Keep your prepared water-filled balloons in a laundry basket.
Rig up your main string, somewhere outside (of course.) We used two standard cup hooks screwed into two date palm trees and attached a piece of rope between them. The balloons will be heavy so allow for some weight to hang off your string.
Attach about six balloons at a time to the main string. Just use the top of the balloon and tie it on - it should hold just with a single knot.
Take it in turns to whack the balloons until they burst. (Make sure everyone stands clear while the whacker is whacking!)
