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! :)
