If your kids like to move (and who doesn’t?) then this they will love this ABC active learning game!
I actually had a different Move and Learn activity planned to share this week…until I spied these cups we had taken from an event for our art supply shelves.
Before we used these styrofoam cups for crafting we decided to stomp on them first. In the name of learning of course!
Adding movement to any skill practice makes it more engaging and memorable for kids. We all learn better when we are having fun!
ABC Active Learning Game
- foam cups (or other type of similar item from the recycling bin like a cut up egg carton!)
- permanent marker
That’s it! All you need to do to prep for this game is to take out some old cups and write letters on the top. Then set them up on the floor and invite your kiddos to stomp!
My youngest is working on letter sounds so she chose a letter, said the sound, and then stomped it out!
I really wasn’t even sure this activity was even enough to write about as a full post, but she had so much fun I couldn’t not share it.
When we were done we collected the scraps to save for art projects–you can use styrofoam for printing, collages, and more.
You can customize the cups with whatever your child is working on–sight words, math facts, etc. There are so many possibilities!
The other Move and Learn co-hosts were busy putting together ABC Move and Learn Activities for kids this week too, make sure to check them out!
