Montessori Alphabet Activity - Water Balloon Pop ABC Letter Matching Game - Preschool Toddler Activity

Fill all 26 balloons with water and draw a letter of the alphabet on each one with a Sharpie. Place them around your yard.

Child picks one letter at a time, finds the matching balloon, pops it, then places the letter on the sheet. Super simple, super fun!

I don’t know what kid doesn’t love water and balloons! We had a blast playing this Montessori alphabet matching game and as soon as it was over, they wanted to play again. Niki’s daughter, Indie who is 2, had a little harder time understanding the game but she loved playing with the letters. Stacey’s son, Makai who is 4, picked it right up and was finding all the letters by himself. He was so proud each time he’d find the matches.

Don’t forget to check out our printable UPPERCASE alphabet letter crafts, LOWERCASE alphabet letter crafts, and fun alphabet sensory bin (this activity uses the same alphabet matching game). Those are great activities to do if it’s still a little colder or rainy where you live.
