One player holds a balloon.
On the leader's signal to begin the balloon is tossed into the air and the team attempts to bump the ball into the air and keep it afloat.
When the balloon hits the floor or is hit by one player two times in a row the activity ends.
Determine which group can keep their balloon afloat the longest.
-Questions et notes:

Make it more challenging by limiting the contact to just hands, head, feet...
