POWDER BALLOONS: Youth Group Games

Students compete to blow up powder-filled balloons in "powder balloons," one of our many free youth group games

Quick Overview:

“Powder Balloons” is another one of the many great youth group games from our friend @youthministryideas. Watch as anticipation fills the room only to erupt into excitement as someone gets covered in powder!

Supplies You’ll Need:

1. Tubing. You can just find small tubing from your local hardware store. Go to the store with the balloons you plan on using so you can make sure the balloon can be attached to the tubing.
2. Balloons. Be sure you buy thin balloons or your contestants will be blowing up the balloons forever. If you’re looking to buy balloons in bulk, you can check out these balloons on Amazon – Click here!
3. Powder. Feel free to use flour, baby powder or any other white powder you might want to use inside the balloon.



Use the powder to fill up as many balloons as you have rounds. Using a funnel helps to fill up the balloon as much as possible with powder. Fill it so it is almost all the way full without the balloon being inflated.

Next, attach your first two balloons to the tube and get ready to have some fun!


Game Play:

You will need two people to play against each other. Hold a balloon over each persons head then extend the tube to the other person. On your GO the contestants will inflate the balloon by blowing into the tube. The person who inflates the balloon so much that it bursts is the winner. Sit back and enjoy watching the powder explode all over the contestant that lost!
