With Bud now at school we have ventured into the world of slightly more learning orientated play! Bud is learning his phonics and is doing great, but gets a few muddled up sometimes (d,b,p etc) so we've been doing a few alphabet games.
We had a load of squash bottles in the recycling so I taped letters to each, one on the front and one on the back. Here they are lined up on the table.
Then I gave Bud a ball and asked him to roll the ball at each letter - 'find me an m?' etc
Once he'd got those letters sussed we turned the bottles round and worked on the ones on the other side.
We enjoyed this and have kept the bottles so we can do it again another day.
