Duck, Duck, Goose
Here's a fun variation of a favorite kids' game.
1. The children sit in a circle as in Duck, Duck, Goose.
2. Each child has a helium-filled balloon tied in a loose bow onto a belt loop or a strap of clothing.
3. The child who is "It" walks around the outside of the circle tapping the balloons and saying "duck."
4. When he/she picks the "goose," he/she smacks his/her balloon while yelling "Goose!" and takes off running around the circle.
5. The "goose" then jumps up and has to snatch the balloon from the child who tagged him/her.
the "goose" gets the balloon, the child who was "It" is out. If the
"goose" doesn't get the balloon before the other child sits in his/her
spot, then s/he is "It" in the next round.
