Magic Jar Alphabet Game
Got a few empty jars or coffee cans? Got a kid who needs some alphabet practice, or is just learning to read? The whole family can play this fun homemade game, and your little one will get some great practice learning his letters, sounding things out, and thinking on his feet!
In this very simple, but very fun game, the letters of the alphabet go into a decorated jar. Each player pulls out a letter and tries to name three things that start with that letter. If they do it in time, they get the letter! But if it takes too long, someone else can steal the turn...
This is a fantastic opportunity for your child to participate in group play, exercise turn taking, counting, alphabet recognition and word play.
