Do you have the big foam letter puzzle?? I am so thankful to have them because we use them for so many fun activities. Here is another alphabet lesson that my daughter and I did last year.
For this activity I let my daughter put the letter pieces where ever she wanted. She thought she was just making a really big hop scotch game. I did let her play some hop scotch but then we also did "I Spy." I really wanted to see how well my daughter would recall her letters when the letters were not in order. I was happy how she recalled her letters. :)
If you have never played "I spy" then let me share it. I would say, "I spy with my little eye the letter B" I would then allow her to find it but if I noticed her searching I would sometimes give her a clue to help find it faster, "I spy the letter B and it is the color purple."
We also did some color jumping. :) "Jump on the color red 6 times." The change the color and the number of times you jump or the action. You can use actions such as jumping jacks, leg kicks, or even a burpee. :)

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
