This is such a simple game that so much can be learned from.
It is great for children, they love to have their own box.
This time we did a basic box with the letters of the boys names, next time I think we will make an activity out of painting the boxes first as they could look much more appealing and personalised, also I feel this would help the child realise the box belongs to them on a more personal level.
The aim of the game is to associate the letter on the box with finding items around the house with names that begin with the same letter. We chose the letters from our names, you could do the same or you could start at A and change the letter on the box for all 26 letters or go one step further and have 26 boxes to fill!
Give your child a box and decide which letter to use. Take an adventure around the house or out and about and find what begins with your letter, spell the word and explain in detail about the item then fill your box with those things.
This helps the child learn the names of objects and what they are as well as realising the same letter can start different words. The child learns by seeking and finding, discovering and gathering.
A much loved game that can be played again and again.
