I was able to share these ideas with a great group of EC Educators at the MIAEYC Conference that was held at the Amway Grand Plaza. I presented on Family Nights--I took them through the process of creating and implementing a Family Night program as well as sharing ideas on funding, volunteers, themes, activities and meals.
Alphabet Soup: Building words with magnetic letters & a cookie Sheet.
Sorting letters/colors using a plastic relish tray.
ABC Memory Game--using fun paper plates
ABC Order-write letters on fun paper plates and have little ones put them in ABC order across the floor.
Womens shaving cream is fun to use to for handwriting practice.
This little sorting game is made out of a used frosting can. I simply cut a hole in the top and hot-glued some pom poms around the sides just for fun. Your little one can use a small pair of plastic tongs to work on their small motor skills and color identification.
I hope these activities have sparked your interest and creativity!
