  1. David Piang-Nee

    Boy that looks like heaps of fun and great way of framing the activity with the added responsibilities/balloons.

    Just wondering if there might be alternative to balloons such as light soft balls that could be used and reused.

      Yes, David, a frequent variation is the use of tennis balls (see Variations tab for details) where the balls must be kept moving all the time (and not kept in the air.)
