This was a hit at my house today!
Last night we made it home after 10 days away for the Thanksgiving holiday. So today was messy and a little chaotic while we readjusted to being home.
Usually being outside is our release or freedom from going crazy inside. But today it was pouring rain! So while I was feeding my 8 month old and entertaining my preschooler, we did something EASY and without ANY PREP to spice up our morning.
WHAT YOU NEED-
- YOUR MESSY TOYS (all over the floor, if you are anything like us)
- With a marker, write down multiple letters. (Easy to sound out)
- Ask your preschooler to find toys that start with your letter. (Sound out the letters together and brainstorm the toys that could be placed next to them….EX- “bbbb…ball, banana, baby doll)
- Fill up your paper with all the toys and high five your preschooler for staying busy and working on his/her letter sounds!
We had fun and were entertained for a while!
Bonus—I felt like a good mom since we were practicing letter sounds!
