Frozen Treasures for the Win!
Muffin tin or silicone mold
Medicine dropper, cups, mallets etc.
Drop the letters into the muffin tin or mold & fill with water. Freeze for a few hours, until solid.
Pop out the frozen treasures and place them in a shallow bowl, tray or outside on the grass/pavement.
Use droppers, pipettes or a wooden mallet to rescue the letters from the ice.
When you're done, freeze them again for next time!
This is SO easy to set-up & so engaging for kids. It's also a great one to differentiate for different age groups, based on the skills that they are working on.
We LOVE learning this way because it is hands-on, sensory driven & strengthens so many skills. While they are playing, they are being exposed to letter names, letter shapes, colors, textures and more. You can incorporate beginning sounds, word building, sorting, patterning & counting, all through play!
