      Fun game idea from Parents - cut pool noodles into two. Break the kids into 2 (or 3 or 4) teams and give them each one (half) pool noodle. Toss a few dozen balloons out on the lawn and tell them they have to get as many balloons into their laundry basket in a set amount of time.

      Thanks to the original pinner / Party game idea for Big Boy's Birthday. Give players five minutes to move as many balloons as possible into the laundry basket without touching the balloons with any body part. The catch? The only tool they can use is their pool noodle. At first, players may try batting the balloons into the basket, but theyll soon realize that they must pair up and use two pool noodles like giant chopsticks to lift the balloons into place.
