Leaf Stomp

Leaf Stomp is a fun indoor activity that encourages lots of moving and letter practice! To prepare, cut leaf shapes out of cardstock and add a targeted letter or letter blend on each. We suggest laminating them for extra durability. Then play lots of letter stomping games! You can call out different letters while your little ones stomp on them and say their sound. You can line the leaves up in a row and have your little ones hop from leaf to leaf saying the letter sounds. Or you’re welcome to come up with your own fun game—please let us know if you do!

Crayon Rubbings

These crayon rubbings are another great way to incorporate art into letter blend practice. Start by prepping the letter blend rubbings in advance—use a glue gun to write each letter blend on the back of a piece of cardstock. Once the glue dries, give your child a crayon and a piece of paper. Set the letter blend underneath the paper, and have your child “rub” the paper with the crayon.  Watch their amazement as the letter blend starts to “appear!” This is a great way to practice the /cr/ sound!

Slap the Blends Game

This is a low-prep but highly engaging game! Start by cutting multiple handprints out of cardstock—trace your little one’s hands for added engagement. Then add your targeted letter blends. We focused on bl, cl, and sl. After sticking the letter blend hands to a wall or laying them flat on a table, let your child “slap” the letters! As they slap each hand, encourage them to say the letter blend they hit. Or call out a letter blend and see if they can find and “slap” the corresponding hand!

Kids love slime—probably more than their parents! But for the /sl/ blend, slime makes the perfect craft! There are tons of ways to make slime (just ask Google). We opted for the easiest recipe of all—a slime kit! But no matter what you choose, slime is sure to be a fun way to practice the /sl/ blend!  

Sloth Snack

Ever tried making a sloth snack? We sure hadn’t, and we quickly realized it wasn’t as easy as we’d hoped! Feel free to use what we finally came up with, or figure out your own sloth snack! We’d love to see your creations! For ours, we spread Nutella on a little more than half a cut bagel, and we spread cream cheese on the rest. Then we sprinkled chocolate sprinkles on the Nutella. We added little smudges of peanut butter where the eyes would go, and lastly, we added chocolate chips for the eyes, nose, and smile! Voila!

Clothespin Bottle Drop

Then grab a bunch of clothespins and write a targeted letter blend on each - we chose /cl/ and /bl/ to start. Finally, let your child drop each clothespin into the bottle, but not before saying the sound of the letter blend on the pin! You can also make it an interactive game by taking turns with your child as you each pick clothespins and see how many you can get correct!

Perler Bead Blends

If you haven’t tried perler beads, you’re missing out! They’re perfect for practicing the /cl/ sound!  Start by creating a C and an L with the same color on the peg board (we helped our little ones with this part). Then let your child fill in the rest of the peg board with a variety of perler beads!  Once their creation is complete, adults can lay a piece of wax paper over the completed pegboard and iron the beads so they fuse together! Once melted, fused, and cooled, let your little ones enjoy their new creation as they practice the /cl/ blend!

Blooming Flowers

This blooming flower activity is the perfect way to get your kiddos moving and practice the /bl/ blend! Begin by making a set of paper flowers (with or without your children). We cut petals from cardstock and used hot glue to bind them together. Then we glued a skewer to the back of each flower. Then “plant” your flowers outside for your children to find. As they collect each bloom, encourage them to practice the /bl/ sound!  

ABC See, Hear, Do 2 Bluebird Craft

Make this awesome bluebird craft, inspired by the ABC See, Hear, Do 2 book!

Blow Paint Volcano

Try a blow paint volcano when practicing the /bl/ blend! First, rip or cut brown construction paper for the base of the volcano. Use a glue stick to glue each piece to a piece of white paper. Then squirt red and yellow paint just above the volcano. Finally, give your child a straw to blow the paint up the paper. It will look like lava exploding!

Start by cutting the straws into different sized-pieces (grown-ups may want to do this part). Then encourage your little ones to help “build” letter Zs. Finally, cover the straw Zs with wax paper and make sure its a a grown-up who irons the letters together - we suggest ironing them on an ironing board or towel. Watch as your little one’s creations melt together, creating extra-funky letter art!  For added fun, try hiding your newly-created letters around the house for a game of letter Z hide-and-seek! Or create straw letters for any of the other straight-edge letters: A, E, F, H, I, K, L, M, N, T, V, W, X, and Y!

Encourage your little ones to say the letter sounds as they play. This quicksand activity provides a fun way to practice the letters and their sounds, while targeting the letter Q!
