Want to add a little “pop” to your letter learning activities? Then this activity has just when you need!
In the next installment of my 101 Ways to Teach the Alphabet Series, I’m sharing an activity called Letter Pop that will provide just the “bang” you need to get your kids excited about the alphabet!
To play Letter Pop, you’ll need several balloons, a permanent marker, and some painter’s tape.
Start by blowing up several balloons and using a permanent marker to write a letter of the alphabet on them. Use the painter’s tape to adhere them to the wall.
Now comes the fun part!
Invite your child over to the balloons. Say a letter sound (or the name of the letter). Have your child find the correct balloon and then pop it!
Your child can pop the balloon by removing it from the wall and sitting on it. Or your child can pop the balloon with a pin.
We used a wood handled pin puncher from Montessori Services to pop the balloons.
Keep going until all the balloons are popped.
I bet your child will have a popping good time!
