We've had fun today playing with some balloons, so I thought I'd share some activity / learning ideas!

  • practice throwing, catching and kicking
  • pat the ball into the air and count how long it takes to float down to the ground
  • tie a string to the balloon and take it for a walk
  • blow up balloons of different colours to help your child learn their colours - can they catch the red one, find the blue one etc
  • play peek-a-boo behind the balloon
  • draw faces on a balloon and practice different emotions

Have fun! Be careful with balloons as uninflated balloons are a choking hazard. Don't blow up the balloon completely - if it isn't over inflated it is harder to burst.
