While the Wow Factory may be known for laser tag and our ropes course, this amusement fun zone also welcomes individual personality and taste. This is particularly true when it comes to renting one of our birthday party rooms. We do allow minimum decoration, games and food. We put together a quick reference for creating some fun games that you can do with balloons that cost very little time and effort. Feel free to use these ideas when visiting us or at home.
For ‘Balloon Bop’ you’ll need to paper plates, a couple of paint sticks from the hardware store, a glue gun and one inflated balloon. Glue the paint sticks to the back of the paper plates. (One stick per plate). Be sure to glue the stick halfway to support the back of the plate. Let them dry and you now are ready for some balloon tennis by using the paper plates as paddles and the blown up balloon. This is a super idea that can be used anywhere. If you aren’t crafty, use a fly swatter from the dollar store.
For a quick fix on gussying up your helium balloons use soft mesh cloth, cut at the ends then secure with a tied ribbon. This balloon idea is super-fast and really makes the party look festive.
Balloon Emoji’s are a cute way to have some fun at your party that can go home with the child afterwards. This will take some preparation time. You’ll need to pick up 1 balloon for each child. Be sure to get the aluminum foil balloons and not latex. Before your party cut out shapes to be used to make faces. Give one balloon to each child to decorate on their own. This is a fun way to see them smile and is an inexpensive giveaway.
Dartless balloons are an awesome way to living up any event and it’s super easy to put together. For this game you’ll need a variety of balloons that are blown up. A large piece of foam care, you can buy at Walmart of Michael’s crafts. You’ll also need tacks, and square pieces of paper with large numbers on them. The numbers roll up and put them into the balloon before blowing them up. On the back of the foam core, stick your tacks and then tape them down so they don’t move. Tape the inflated balloons on the board, then toss a bean bag toward the balloons. Each kid takes turns and whoever hits your child’s birthday age (number inside) wins a prize. It’s that simple.
Of course, these are just a couple of quick ideas for you to liven up the party. By using a little ingenuity and of course visiting places like Pinterest, you will be the party planner of the season.
