Hitting Letter Balloons



Age: From 2 years old

Activity Duration: 5-10 minutes

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Objective(s):
1. To provide a fun and cheap way of teaching alphabet through movements.

Materials:
1. 4 balloons each written with 1 letter (c, m, a, and t, for example) with a black marker.
2. 1 string (I use 2 shoe laces)

Directions:
1. Blow up 4 balloons and tie it with rubber bands. Then write the letters on them. Tie them to the string. Find a suitable spot in your home and connect the string of ballons to two points (I use two door knobs as shown in the picture).

2. Demonstrate by calling out the sound of one of the letters on the balloons and ask your child to run over to hit the balloon with the alphabet that you just called.

Additional Information:
We tried this during "Fun with English" class for toddlers yesterday, and J (2Y1M25D) and Amy had a lot of fun.
