Holidays are always a wonderful time to take a simple learning activity and turn it into a fun, themed game. We made this literacy game a few years ago and it still gets pulled out with our Valentines decorations each year and ignites new enthusiasm every time. Plus, as is my way, it's super simple to create and play (and cheap!).
The Fox and the Fisherman is a tale of friendship and family, originally written in French . . . and if that level of alliteration doesn't inspire you to do a craft brought to you by the letter F, well, I don't know what will!
I'm sharing our new favourite early literacy Easter egg-tivity (with supplies you likely already have, or can get at the dollar store). And, bonus, it's not only fun, it's also educational (sneaky learning is the best!).
Trying to teach your toddler or young preschooler how to spell their name? Yeah, that can be challenging, especially if their name has more than three or four letters *guilty as charged.* I came up with this fun egg puzzle to help my kids learn how to spell their names. All you'll need are some plastic Easter eggs, an empty egg carton, permanent marker, scissors and tape.
