Summer Time – Water Balloon Fight Rules

Rules of Engagement Water Balloon Style

It’s that time of year when the kids are home from school and summer has arrived! My kids and I have always enjoyed a good water balloon fight, as a means to cool down on a hot summer day without leaving our yard. Usually you can purchase a large lot of water balloons for cheap money.

Rules of Engagement Water Balloon Style

  • No one, and I mean no one is to throw a water balloon at anyone’s face, unless told to do so by that person.
  • No one is to throw a water balloon at another person unless they 1) have a water balloon in hand and 2) are partaking in the battle.
  • When the bucket of water balloons are gone, there are no more water balloons, so use them wisely.
  • If your kids are like mine can be, make sure to count how many balloons each child is allowed to have. Once used up, they are done.
  • No throwing water balloons at any windows, cars or other inanimate objects that may break.
  • Last but not least, HAVE FUN!

Summer only comes around once a year, so why not use these water balloon fight rules as a way to help your children stay entertained and cooled off on a hot Summer day!
