Fruit Ninja has got to be one of the most addictive apps out there. The premise is simple: swipe as many fruits as you can with your trusty finger-sword to rack up points. And thanks to Love Them Madly blogger Jodie, you can now try this out in real life!


On her blog, she offers instructions for setting up a "live" version of Fruit Ninja using fruit-shaped water balloons and a toy sword:
As [my son] envisioned, we tried taking turns tossing the balloons in the air, for the other to try to pierce in the air. Our plastic sword did not have the desired impact on airborne balloons, so we hung the balloons from white plastic chain-link strung between two columns. This part of the set-up took the most patience.

Once we hung a few balloons, each Ninja had sixty seconds to knock down as many "fruits" as possible. This part was fast and fun!
Sounds like an awesome idea for birthday parties or practicing your ninja skills during those sunny weekends. Just make sure nobody accidentally pokes an eye out!
