Balloon Challenge Video

During PE this year we put up our volleyball net, aired up a BUNCH of balloons, and worked so hard on getting low, using proper technique for our forearm pass. Remember when a random balloon would pop when it was just in the air? MAN made my heart jump every time!  Remember how we would count to see how many bumps in a row we could get on our own or with a partner?

Well here is a video that has other balloon challenges that can be done inside or outside, alone or in a group. As you work through the challenges be sure to count how many you can get on each one.

Have fun and be sure to have a family member snap a photo and then email it to sadams@caldwellschools.org if you would like to see your picture here on the PE website! I will add all balloon challenge photos to this POST!

Good Luck and have fun!
