I like this activity because you get to make a fun educational toy for your kids and you only need a few supplies to make it. This activity teaches your child the basics of reading by getting to know sight words.
This activity is easy enough for younger kids to do, since shape matching is not that difficult.
Plus it’s a great activity for me because it uses items that I have in the house, plus it is a great way to use up old paper shopping bags (I use them instead of butchers paper).
You only need colored paper, a marker and Velcro to make awesome abc paper chains where kids can learn the alphabet and form words with the chains. They can also go crazy and chain together random letters just for fun.
