Learning the alphabet with 26 letters can be a bit daunting for some kids. Finding ways to make it fun can help to ease the stress or anxiety they might be feeling. Here are 2 quick ways to make it seem more like a game or a craft and help you sneak in some learning when they aren’t looking! 😉
The first way is to use some magnetic letters. I found this batch at Walmart. Your kids can play with the letters on the side of your refrigerator or try using a metal cookie sheet. The cookie sheet keeps the letter all in one easy place and means it can be taken to a chair or comfy spot for playing.
The second idea is to use some beads with letters printed on them. These come in several shapes, sizes and colors. With some string, your kids can make a bracelet while putting the letters on the string in order. Wearing the bracelet can make it fun to sing the alphabet song while moving each letter bead as that letter is sung.
Or make a slip knot in each end of the string after the letter beads have been strung and now the letters can be hung up. 🙂 Hope these 2 quick and easy ideas will bring some fun to your house while learning letters. 😊
