It's that wet and wonderful time of year again- summertime- and who doesn't love a water balloon fight!? This fun, open-ended game is guaranteed to make skill drill fun!
This simple but addictive game is perfect for your speech therapy sessions or skill drill small groups. Just set a timer for any length of time and begin drill (of any skill - articulation, fluency, sight words, math facts, answering questions, etc). After your student performs a skill to your liking (1 time, 3 times, 5 times, etc) allow him/her to pick a card. If it’s a full water balloon, he/she gets to keep it. If it’s one of the POPPED water balloons, he/she must also keep it. The object of the game is to end up with the most FULL balloons and avoid getting “hit” with the popped balloons. The player with the most FULL balloons wins while the player with the most POPPED balloons loses.
If players pick a wild card, follow the directions on the card- many cards allow you to give a POPPED balloon away!
For a quick game, take out the wild cards as they are chosen. To lengthen the game, keep wild cards in.
When the timer rings (or when all cards are taken) everyone should count their full balloons and their popped balloon card and the winner will be revealed!
*A summer themed lists of words is included to use as desired.
To prep: print and cut all cards. Laminate for durability. Print extra pages to have LOTS Of water balloons for play with large groups .
Just print, cut, & play (laminate for durability). No wasted paper
