6. Play a game of Bubble Soccer
You’ll be (literally) rolling on the floor laughing with this one! Ever tried playing football with a big bouncy bubble around you? Bubble Soccer is not easy, but it is super fun. Instead of actually kicking the ball, you’ll be bouncing off each other and rolling around throughout the game!
