Author's Note: 5 Fun Water Balloon Games for Kids
Until I began researching this article, I probably hadn't played with water balloons since ... well, college. And those antics weren't really geared for children. Writing about water balloon games, however, prompted a rediscovery for the entire family. So far, we've tried all five of these games, plus a few more that devolved into water balloon fights. Not only have we had a good laugh, but the lawn is looking great. All that water's been good for everyone -- and everything.
