A Play with Letters Activity for Toddlers

Alphabet I Spy

Play with Letters Find print everywhere. Play with words and letters.


Alphabet I Spy

Take a walk in your neighborhood and point out all the letters you can see - on signs, buildings, or even license plates. Talk about the different letters you see, especially ones that are meaningful to your child. "The stop sign starts with S, just like your name!" You could even play I Spy or create a scavenger hunt to see how many signs, words, or letters you can find.

Teddy bear, teddy bear, show your shoe.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, that will do!

(Make up your own actions for Teddy to do!)
