Sight Words Balloon Pop

Teaching Xander to read vocabulary words was super fun and easy (mostly through Little Reader).  Sight words are much less fun.  I still flash them to him through Little Reader, but it is hard to reinforce them with no pictures/tangible items.  For a fun twist, I decided to play a sight words balloon popping game.

I started with a bunch of water balloons and a push pin. 

Xander got to pick a balloon and read me the word.  If he read it correctly, he got to poke it with the pin.
His reactions were priceless!
 The game was a great success!  He immediately asked to play again!  How do you reinforced sight words with your kids?
