In this activity Lauren was able to exercise her hand muscles, memory, and letter knowledge all at the same time. But don't tell her she was learning, she was sure it was just a lot of fun!
To play this game we used our Melissa and Doug Latches Board, six sandpaper letters, and six small letter cards.
Lauren chose a small letter card, identified the letter, and hid it behind one of the doors. She continued until all of the letters were hid.
Then I showed her a sandpaper letter and she traced the letter, identified the letter, and searched behind the doors until she found the letter. She continued until she found all of the letters. I knew this activity was a hit when she asked to play it again the next day!
