Too hot to go outside? 
Blow up a batch of balloons for some indoor fun. 
Smiles are free!

1.  Traditional Keep it up- how many taps before the balloon falls on the ground?
2.  Keep it up soccer style... with anything but your hands- use your head, elbow, feet, etc.
3.  Use a sheet to keep balloons in the air as a team.
4.  Preschool play- count, sort by color. 
                                                                                                                                                                                 

                  
5.  Play a fun Balloon Game

7.  Experiment with electricity activities.

My kids are always begging for me to blow up balloons to play with in the house. I usually do for birthdays and holidays... they wish I did it everyday! Great list of ideas to extend the play
