Squirt the letter game- letter recognition and sounds with some fun. (CHALK IDEA)


What child does not love squirt bottles?  I know my kids keep finding my plant bottle and keep trying to get each other and the dog.  So instead of spraying each other I turned this into some work for my preschooler.  I have some flashcards and anytime we use them we have to be doing something more fun then flipping through them.  So I created a letter board using sidewalk chalk.  After that was completed I had my daughter hop from letter to letter saying her alphabet.  Then I got the flash cards out and she had to tell me the letter, give me the sound, and then locate it on the sidewalk and shoot and aim!  :)  She had a lot of fun.  We also got to do the letters more then one time because the water was drying so quickly!  I also would give her a number and that was how many squirts she had to squirt the letter.  (Had to sneak some math in there.)  

I wish I would have done upper and lower case letters.  I really need to start working more on lower case letters but I never seem to think about it till I'm done with the activity.  

I also let my 16 month old have fun with the squirt bottle!  :)  He had fun aiming at all the letters.
