Clothespin – Balloon Relay

You will need:
Masking tape
Clothespins
Small balloons

Blow up as many small balloons that you think you will need. Place them at one end of the room. At the other end of the room divide a wall into different sections for goals (each team will have a section). Take strips of tape and link each end together in an “O” shape (sticky side on the outside). Put a lot of strips on the wall. Each area must have the same amount masking tape in their goal area. Give each team member a clothespin. The object of the game is to pick up the balloons with the clothespin in your mouth without using your hands and get as many balloons stuck on the your team’s goal strips at the other end of the room. If the balloon is dropped anywhere along the way, that person has to keep trying to pick it up with the clothespin. Whichever teams has the most balloons on the tape in their goal area when all the balloons are off the floor – WINS! Helpful hint: since players cannot use their hands at all, they can use their knees to hold the balloons in place and pick up the balloons by the tail. But you don’t have to give them this helpful hint.
