Balloon Balance Game

Supplies Needed:

  1. Containers of varying size (bowls, pots, buckets, etc.)
  2. Balloons (same number as the number of containers you have)
  3. Rice or beans


  1. Set out the containers of varying sizes next to one another starting from shortest to tallest
  2. Fill up the balloons with rice and set them next to each container
  3. Have your child start at the smallest container and lift the balloon with their foot and place it in the container
  4. Once they have completed the smallest, they can move on to the highest until they have successfully placed the balloons in each container

Skills Addressed: Balance & Postural Control

Idea to modify/simplify: You can start by first just practicing lifting the balloon and balancing it before attempting to place it into a container
