toddler activity – recognising letters

DSC_0617 DSC_0618 DSC_0620Here’s a really quick and easy activity to put together on a day when you’re stuck for inspiration. It only takes a minute to put together and all with bits you’re more than likely to have at home – just an empty toilet tissue roll, some stickers and a pen.

Tabitha struggled with some of them but easily found others so it’s a great way to encourage children to recognise letters that they aren’t as familiar with. She instantly recognised the ‘t’ for ‘Tabitha’ and the ‘s’ for ‘snake’ but other letters she needed some guidance.

I can see us doing this one a lot more often. It’s quick enough to keep their attention, is a great one-on-one activity and of course is great for preparing little ones for their first days at school.
