Alphabet hunt and Letter collage
Just like treasure hunt, here is an alphabet hunt game. I started the game with the idea of hunting/searching for alphabets and then making a collage of it. My 34 months old was patient enough to find the alphabets. It did take good 10 minutes to hunt for the alphabets. Then I could sense that he was not very interested in playing further. “Mom am tired! we will play this later” ordered my son
The next day he promptly asked if we could continue with the alphabet game and we made the letter collage. What started as a one game got split into two simple alphabet games! The best part is that LO enjoyed playing both.
Game 1: Take an old magazine (with lots of pictures to interest the kid). Ask your child to find the alphabets A-Z. If your child can cut proper shapes then ask the child to cut the letters, otherwise you can help with cutting. Store all the alphabets in a pouch/box.
Aim: Alphabet recognition.
Game 2: Take a construction sheet and ask your child to glue the letters in the proper order.
Aim: Alphabet order.
Instead of hunting for all the letters and then making the collage, older kids can cut the letters and parallely glue them to the collage.
