Strengths Balloon Tennis

Supplies Needed:

  • Craft sticks
  • Glue
  • Paper plates
  • Balloon
  • Markers


1. List at least 5 strengths you see in yourself on your paper plate.  Decorate as much or as little as you would like.

2. Glue the craft stick to the back of your plate.

3. Blow up your balloon.  Experiment with what makes it float better.

4. Use your paddles to hit the balloon back and forth.  You can play to see who drops the balloon first or you can work as a team to see how many hits in a row you can get!

Questions for Discussion:

1. Why did you pick the strengths you did?
2. What are some other strengths you see in each other?
3. What is your strategy for this game?
4. Do you play games with your friends?  Your family?  What do you like to play?
