Do you have one of these at your house? I just bought one at the second hand store and was immediately overwhelmed by the amount of primary colors in my home. =) After awhile, it probably gets boring just taking the letter pieces in and out. So here are a few more ideas about how to use this bright, ABC mat!
ABC Beginning Sounds Hunt
We searched the house for things that started with each letter. I had two rules with this hunt. 1) Only one object on each letter and 2) After we were done and showed Dad, it had to be picked up.
It was so fun! Without the play food and animals it would have been hard to fill up.
Other ideas with this ABC Mat:
Use a play hammer to pound in the letters
Match magnetic letters to the letters on the mat
Match lowercase letters to the letters on the mat
Spell words with the letter pieces
Find books that begin with each letter
Jump from letter to letter to spell your name
Jump from letter to letter to spell CVC words
Jump to a letter that makes the sound ___.
Race to see how fast you can put the puzzle back together
