-A Large Flat Piece of Wood
Blow up the balloons about 3/4 full and tie their ends. Try and stand on a balloon without popping it. You probably are able to pop the balloon pretty easy. Put the piece of wood on a layer of balloons. Carefully stand on the board. The balloons should not pop. How many people can you get on the board?
When you stand on a single balloon all of your weight is concentrated on a single small area. When you stand on the board, with the balloons underneath, your weight is supported by many balloons and your weight is evenly distributed ove a large area of each balloon.
