1. Begin by blowing up balloons. You will want a generous amount, so the more the merrier.
2. Write a number on each balloon starting and one and working your way up. Allow the balloons some time to dry so the ink does not smear and get all over.
3. Place all of the balloons on the floor.
4. To play, each child picks a number (or can line up) and wait for their turn to hop on the balloon to pop it. The trick is, balloons must be popped in order. As the game goes on they will get all shuffled up, so finding the balloon that is numerically less will become a challenge!
5. Turn on the music and let the kids go to town! They should try to pop the balloon by hopping on it only, NO HANDS!
