We moved our ottoman into the middle of the room. Then had the kids play on either side to create the feel of a tennis court.
Balloon Dice Roll
In this activity the kids will be counting both, the dots on the dice, and counting aloud as they try and keep the balloon in the air.
If you have a younger child that is working on learning to count use one die, that way they can work on counting from 1-6.
Once your child has rolled the dice, have them count the dots. then have them try and keep the balloon in the air for that many taps.
This is a great activity for counting, developing coordination, and is great exercise too!
These games work great as party games for kids too!
Have fun playing balloon tennis!
