It’s easy to play and set up, making it a great game to play at home or take to a party.

Here’s What You’ll Need For Balloon Volleyball:

  • 1 balloon – blown up with air (have a few more ready just in case the first one pops)
  • Paper Streamer
  • *alternatives to streamer can be a string, a volleyball net or just use masking tape on the floor

Setting up the game: Making the volleyball court

  • Find an open area to play the game so the players have room to move around
  • Find 2 items to tie the paper streamer to that are across from each other – creating your net
  • *I did not have 2 items directly across from each other so we used a stuffed giraffe and a pillar
  • Tie the streamer, string or net to your two items
  • Blow up some balloons
  • Have one ready to go and others in a bag in case the first one pops

Alternatives for setting up the volleyball court:

  • Players can stand in a circle with a line down the middle of the floor

Playing the game:

  • Divide players into two teams
  • Decide on which team serves first
  • Give that team the balloon
  • The team should serve the balloon across the net to the other team
  • Play goes on with each team passing the balloon back and forth across the net without it touching the ground
  • If the balloon touches the ground, the team on the side of the dropped balloon loses that match and a point is awarded to the other side
  • The team to get to 10 points first, wins the game!

Tips for playing Balloon Volleyball:

  • Store extra balloons that are blown up in a bag and ready to replace a popped balloon
  • Alternatives to  a paper streamer net are string, a volleyball net or even a piece of masking tape on the floor as a dividing line
  • Use a beach ball instead of a balloon
