Select inexpensive prizes and write the name of each on small pieces of paper. Fold the paper and insert into the balloons. Blow up the balloons and tie strings on the ends. Use a permanent felt-tip marker to write a number on each. Fasten the balloons securely to a bulletin board.
All boys and girls who attend on "Balloon Burst" day receive a number. Each child pops his respective balloon with a hat pin and claims the prize.
