Books About Colors

We are focusing on colors this week, exploring primary colors and color-mixing. We found these great picture books at our local library using a SUBJECT search for “Colors — juvenile fiction.” Using these search terms in a subject search will help you find children’s fiction about colors instead of everything in the collection that mentionsContinue reading “Books About Colors”

ABC’s Matching Game!

My two year old loves this super simple matching game. And she’s really good at it! I originally made it for my son to match lower case letters to uppercase and decided to modify it so my daughter could start with matching upper case to upper case. I used 1/3 poster board, drew 26 circlesContinue reading “ABC’s Matching Game!”

Sprinkles Letters!

We love doing Sprinkles crafts (and eating them). When we do letters, I usually have my son write the letters in marker then trace with school glue and then pour on the sprinkles! Don’t forget to use a deep pan or craft tray when doing this at home or sprinkles will go everywhere!

Homemade ABCs Soup

Growing up “Sopa” was my favorite dish. It wasn’t until I got older that I learned that “Sopa” just meant “soup” in Spanish. My mother always used La Moderna Alphabet pasta. They are like 50 cents a bag and a great way for my kids to see and eat their ABCs. And I love thatContinue reading “Homemade ABCs Soup”

Without a curved line, you can still make about 15 letters and several different shapes depending on how many sticks you make. WeContinue reading “Pom Poms Popsicle Stick Letters”

I just used the $4 set of Munchkin foam letters and numbers, some craft magnet buttons, and hot glueContinue reading “DIY Foam Alphabet Magnets”

Shapes Twister – Sidewalk Chalk Game

Twister was always a fun game to play as a child. Mostly to see how tangled up we could get before falling down. We’ve been having to get creative with our sidewalk chalk lately, and decided to draw games on the ground instead of the usual flowers and letters. This Shapes Twister game has beenContinue reading “Shapes Twister – Sidewalk Chalk Game”
