Activity Time. Alphabet Pegs.

As you may have guessed right now the monsters are mad about letters, be that spotting letters from their name in shops, on signs, on anything! I want to further their exploration and encourage learning so I have made these super easy and cheap to make Alphabet Pegs (it's part of our Learn The Letters Busy Box, which I will be blogging about pretty soon!)



Made simply using a pack of wooden pegs from Poundland and a marker pen, I wrote 1 (lower-case) letter of the alphabet on each side of the peg, making sure that I made a few extra vowels and some recognisable capital letters too, so that they could attempt their names and other familiar names (Mummy, Daddy etc).


I also popped a my first words board book in the envelope so that they can have a go at matching letters to familiar words...





Jenson has since added his name card from preschool, which was a great idea of his! I think I am going to make some more up with familiar names on!

  10. This is absolutely brilliant!! My girls would love this idea, and I happen to have a load of wooden pegs. Also a great way to use a book that's kind of outgrown too. I have lots that I can't bear to part with. Becky x #ToddlerApprovedTuesday
