Welcome to Colour Balloons, a fun game to help young learners practice their colours and numbers! A colour word will appear at the top of the screen, and it’s up to you to find and tap the balloon that matches that colour. But be careful – if you choose the wrong balloon, it will float up a little way! Are you ready to test your skills and have some fun? Let’s get started!
Notes and Credits

To teach colours using this game, start by reviewing the colours with the students to ensure they understand which colour each balloon represents. Once you are confident in their understanding, you can start calling out the word at the top of the screen.
To practise numbers and speaking, the teacher can ask questions like: Teacher: “What colour is number three?” Student: “It’s yellow.”
You can also reverse this to practise numbers: Teacher: “What number is the green balloon?” Student: “It’s number five.”
You can also practise word recognition by having the student read the word at the top of the screen and touch the correct balloon.
