Water Balloon ABCs
Minnie had a balloon for each letter of the alphabet. I would call out a letter and she would find that letter and throw it at Daddy. If your kids already know the letters well try saying a word and having them find the letter it starts will. For example Zebra; your child would find the letter Z.
Reading with Water Balloons
Goofy had 26 different sight words written on his balloons. He read them as I wrote them on the balloons. He read them again before he was allowed to throw them! Who said reading isn’t fun!?!?!
Learning Colors with Water Balloons
Tinker bell had her own basket with 5 water balloons. She had a GREAT time carrying them around and had fun popping them on herself! Depending on the age of your tot you could reinforce colors, counting, or draw shapes on them.
So glad Daddy works from home to have fun lunch breaks with us! Besides, if Daddy wasn’t home you know who they’d want to throw balloons at….. yep- ME!
