Supplies you’ll need
water balloons or sponges and a bucket of water to put them in
Little learner games
For our little learners, have them practice writing their numbers one through ten with chalk and draw a circle around the number. Next, using either water balloons or wet sponges, call out a number and have them toss the balloon on the number.
If you’re kiddos know their numbers have them move to numbers all the way to 100 using the same concept.
Working on building 10? Help them draw ten frames in the sidewalk and have them help fill them in. Call out a number and have them toss the sponge or balloon on it.
How about practicing addition or subtraction facts? Write a bunch of problems and circle them. Have them choose a problem, read it out loud and say the answer then through the water balloon to show they completed it.
You can do the same thing with multiplication as well to get the older kids playing!
I hope your kiddos have fun getting outside playing in the water but getting some fun math practice in at the same time!
