Practice letters or spelling while your kids get some movement into their day with this easy activity you can keep on hand for repeat play all summer!
What you’ll need:
- Construction paper
- Cut construction paper into large squares and write a single letter on each one.
- Walk around your house taping them to the walls in a random order. Spread them out, and hang them at an eye level low enough your child can see them.
- Call out a letter, and have your child go try and find it!
- When they find the letter, they have to grab it and race back to you to hear the next which letter is next.
If you have several kids, feel free to put a more competitive spirit to this activity and have them race to see who can find the letter first.
Other ways to set up this activity can include sending them hunting for the letter that starts a word, like “find me the first letter of the word ‘car’. Not ready for letters? Try blank colored paper and send them on a color hunt.
This game was inspired by an activity from Busy Toddler.
