A fun game to play with an activity ball




By Todd Strong and Bernie DeKoven


Hair Dryer

When you first open the valve of a fully inflated activity ball, the air really gushes out. People just love to stand in front of the escaping air for a quick round of Hair Dryer, in which the air blows their hair around as in a high-fashion photo shoot. There’s really no point to this game, but the players enjoy it. Players with long hair can pose for all of the fashion photographers that will surely appear once their tresses start flowing in the wind.
