We might not be beside the seaside but we can bring the fun of beach volleyball to the living room! This fun activity is great for stretching out arms and legs, engaging with each another and igniting plenty of giggles. It can be done standing or sitting, with the slow-moving balloons keeping the pace nice and gentle.

You can set this activity up in minutes, with just one blown-up balloon!

The Activity

  1. Get everyone to stand or sit in a circle, or split them into two rows facing each other. Simply choose what is best for your group, and tailor the activity to suit their mobility
  2. Hand out the small bats to each person (optional). If you’re not using bats, people can use their hands
  3. Tell them, “I’m going to throw the balloon up into the air and if it comes your way, hit it! We want to bounce the balloons back and forth, so everyone has a go”
  4. Put on some uplifting music when the game starts – and go!
  5. Keep the game going for as long as people are able and have a rest halfway through, if needed
