Inside: Cactus balloon darts game!

One morning, a few weeks back, I woke up minding my own crafting business when I happened upon it… A cactus balloon! To be specific a stash of cacti inflatable toys. Cactus balloons! Striped and dotted and immediately ready for a party. And I immediately had to get my hands on them and create something totally fun!

So we planned a quick game of cactus darts.

Let’s Fiesta

A fun party game for celebrating that the sun is finally shining, Cinco De Mayo, coming birthdays, everything really. I like to think of darts as the grown-up version of a Pinata. Stuff the green spots of happiness with goodies for a popping good time – pun totally intended! I love playing this fun cactus balloon dart game for all our summer outdoor parties! It’s a great game to pull out for birthday bashes, Cinco De Mayo or just to celebrate the weekend! There is never a bad occasion for cactus balloons!

The most fun cactus balloon dart game

To make your own cactus dart wall, purchase inflatable cactus balloons. We also added in long green balloons to add a fun dimension to the dart game.

Stuff all the balloons with confetti, prizes, and goodies; then hang on the wall. There’s no need for helium here since the balloons won’t stay up when filled with goodies anyway. Just blow them up and hang on the wall. Grab a few darts and give one to each friend. They get to keep the goodies from whichever balloon they pop.
