Alphabet bowling

alphabet bowling

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.

  1. The alphabet bowling is such a neat idea. My kids love games like these - I might try the same thing but with sight words instead of letters.

  2. Thanks for stopping by, mixing it up for sight words is a great idea, I'll have to remember that once we move on to sight words.

  3. Brilliant idea, my little ones would love this. First time here I love the mess ratinb although I think my lot would take that as a challenge ;)coming via tip toe through tuesday
