TIPS
  • Include multiples of the same letter on different colored paper to increase this activity’s difficulty (for example, ask your child to find the yellow ‘H’ balloon). This builds and reinforces children’s letter and color recognition. Additionally, the added element of following two step directions also strengthens children’s executive functioning skills.
  • If your child is old enough, involve them in making the balloon cut-outs. Ask them to trace, then cut out, the balloon’s shape from the colored paper. This fine motor practice strengthens children’s dexterity and coordination.
