A Letters (and Numbers) Game


This is a perfect activity for preschoolers who are beginning to learn their letters and numbers.  I found this idea over at Hands On As We Grow, and as luck would have it, I found both foam letters and numbers in the dollar section at Target a couple weeks ago (thank you back-to-school deals).


To keep her interest level up while searching for all 26 letters, I “hid” them in places where she could easily find them.  She often brought 2-3 letters back to the sheet at a time, matched them and then headed back out in search for more.

One note: the foam letters I purchased are all in capital form.  I tried writing the lower case to have her match its capital counterpart, but found she’s a little too young for that still.  At 3, matching the cap with the cap is challenging enough.
