3 Fun Ways to Learn Letters

I hope I’m not the only one whose kids are resistant (read: flat out refuse) to practice their letters.  So, we tested some ways to make practice more fun and here are 3 of our favorites! 

1.  Letter Monster

I saw this on Pinterest and loved it. You use an empty baby wipes container and write letters on bottle caps, and then the monster is hungry for letters and your kids have to feed it. The trick here is to really get into character. You gotta own it! (Please keep caps away from babies obvs!) 

2.  Salt & Letter

Salt and letter. Get it?  Pour a cup of salt on a tray or a plate with edges.  Ask your kids to write letters in the salt.  Presley especially liked it especially shaking up the tray in between letters.

2.  Wheel of Letters

Step right up or should I say step right out! This is a great one on the go. You write your letters around a paper plate, cut slits and when you’re out you ask your kids to identify the letters and when they get it you fold them over. It’s genius because you don’t have to carry around a pen or pencil.
