Balloon Math

Write the numbers 0-10 on deflated water balloons, and then fill them up. Using sidewalk chalk, write the numbers 0-10 on your driveway. Give your child a balloon with a single number on it and have him match the balloon with the number on the driveway. Then let your child pop the balloon on the matching number as a fun reward!
