A couple of weeks ago I shared a fun sight word balloon toss game that we did to practice our sight words this summer. We had my nephew over the other day that is going into kindergarten this fall so we switched up the game and did this letters and sounds balloon toss.
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
My kids learned their letter sounds when they were 2 with the help of the Letter Factory. My nephew has been obsessed with it too and we love to sing the song together to practice our letter sounds.
We’re taking our letters and sounds practice outside today and using water balloons. I drew a bunch of letters on the ground with chalk and made a circle around each one to make it more like a target. You can have the kids write the letters too for practice.
Next, you’ll want to fill up the water balloons. Have the kids choose a letter, say the name and the sound that it makes, and then toss the water balloon at it.
Have them keep going until they’ve identified each letter and sound. Move to another area and play the game all over again! Water balloons make practicing letters and sounds so much fun!
I hope you kids have as much as mine did with this letters and sounds balloon toss!
What other ways do you like to practice letters and sounds outside?
