Time To Play With The ABC's

I have shared many times that I love to teach my children through play. The ABC's is no different. Maybe you have taken the time to sing the ABC song with your child. In this post you may get a few more ideas.

Enjoy a bowl of alphabet soup and take a turn sharing each letter before eating every bite. After all it will provide a great conversation while eating. 


I recently saw a set of print blocks with the alphabet on it at the local dollar store. You may want to see if you can purchase some. One way of learning is to have it in their environment. Allow them to play with the stamps while they learn the letters.



Art is a great way to learn the alphabet through apple prints, aluminum foil, alphabet pasta, or foam shapes

C - cotton balls, corn kernels, cinnamon (ground), coffee (ground), car stickers, construction paper (torn)
D - dirt, dots (stickers or do-a-dot markers), daisy petals, foam dinosaur shapes
E - egg shells, foam egg shapes, envelope strips, eyes (wiggly), earth stickers
F - feathers, foam, puffy finger paint, flower petals, fruit loops, flower stickers or stamps
