This is a fun way to practice number recognition, number ordering and one to one correspondance on a hot sunny day!
Sharpie or permanent marker
First fill up some water balloons. Then write numbers on the balloons. We worked on 1-10. I always fill up extra in case some water balloons pop along the way.
Kysen started with one and then lined the balloons up 1-10.
After Kysen lined them all up he counted them to make sure he got all ten!
When we were all done practicing with numbers, he got to pop all the water balloons. First he was throwing them and then he decided to stomp on them!
Make sure you don’t forget to pick up the balloon pieces! It’s a great fine motor activity!
