If you have a preschooler and leftover plastic eggs you will love this tip. Use stickers or a permanent marker to make a game for matching upper and lowercase letters. This blog has all the details and some wonderful hints at how to make this successful for your eager learner.
As a mom of many ages, I can see so many possibilities with this idea. It’s way more fun than flash cards and you get to recycle. Use this same premise as a matching game for shapes and their names, inventions and inventors, squares and square roots, states and capitals, nations and their flags, elements and their symbol (or atomic number!). Okay, I have to go dig up some eggs now!
