My son loves to play this game – he doesn’t even realize we’re actually having “school time.” This is an easy way to teach toddlers just about anything: letters, colors, shapes, or any other concept you’re working on. Older kids could play this game with sight words as well.
All you need is stuff you already have at home: paper, stickers, and markers.
I use construction paper and draw different shapes, colors, and letters. Repetition is key here. If your child is having a difficult time grasping a triangle, for example, you may want to draw many triangles. I hand my son one sticker at a time, giving him a job of something to search for – “find mama the color purple.” When he finds it, he gets to cover it with a sticker. Easy as that!
We play this game a lot at home. I need to start packing stickers in my purse so we can play it while out to eat or waiting at the doctor’s office.
