This challenge was created by Dr Amanda Gummer Child Psychologist and Founder of the Good Play Guide ( ), to encourage children and their caregivers to make the most of their time at home.

Ready? Here's how you can participate:

  1. Inflate a balloon.
  2. Film yourself catching it and throwing it out of shot.
  3. Upload the video.
  4. Copy & paste this to your timeline: “Pass the balloon, not the virus! Play is not cancelled! Let’s teach our kids all about the fun of playing at home by ‘passing’ on the balloon to each other in the funniest way possible. Let’s see your trick shots, fancy dress, slow-mo creations… game on!”
  5. Tag the friends you want to catch the balloon and pass it on.
  6. Remember to use the hashtag #CovidBalloonChallenge and #QualatexBalloons.
