Bottle Cap Games for Kindergarten Readiness
Wondering what to do with all those plastic bottle caps? Don't throw them out - reuse them! Plastic bottle caps are not recyclable and often times they end up being eaten by sea life (with fatal results).
Those plastic caps can become simple tools to help your preschooler with essential skills for kindergarten: including fine motor, counting, categorizing and learning the alphabet. These activities work well with a starting base of around 200 caps. It may sound like a lot, but if you leave a container on your kitchen counter to "catch the caps" they will add up quickly!
What You Need:
- Assortment of plastic bottle caps in a variety of colors, around 200
- 2 small sheets of poster board
- Permanent marker
