Alphabet Spoon- Matching Game

 Thank you to; From Kindergarten With Love, who gave me this idea.  I love her vinyl letters and wish I could have made mine like that, but I have no a marker will have to do.  :) :) 

Kids love games and I have noticed that if I say "game" to anything my daughter gets excited.  :)  When those "games" are educational I get excited.  :) 

This was very easy to create!  I found both clear and white spoons at the dollar store.  I used white as my capital letters and clear as my lower case letters.  

I know my daughter knows her capital letters much better then lower case so this game is good practice for her to start to learn those lower case letters better.  

I spread the upper case and lower case letters out in two different piles.  Then I first had her locate the letters in her name and put the lower case with the upper case.  After she did her name I told her to try to make as many pairs as she could.  I could easily see her getting frustrated because of all the letters still left.  So to alleviate some of her stress I took out 5 upper and 5 lower case letters to make pairing a bit easier for her.  

I now know what lower case letters we really need to focus on!  The spoons are easy to store and this could even be a travel game!  :)  We are taking a road trip soon for a wedding and it will be fun for her to have one bag of letters at a time searching for the letters as she looks out the car window.  :)  So we will be taking these with us!  :)

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
