Are you doing letter of the week with your toddler? I’ve been sharing a variety of simple activities for 2-year-olds over the past year.
We love to share activities that worked for us, but please choose only the ones that your child enjoys. Children go through a tremendous out of growth and maturity the year that they’re two. Some of these activities might not work right after your child’s second birthday – but when he or she is close to turning three, they might be just the thing!
We began with the printable book from the free Learning the Alphabet. After my daughter colored the pictures, we named them.
We also di this free “cut and paste letter sounds” activity, also from Learning the Alphabet.
I printed a block letter L, and my daughter colored it using water paint.
This was another fun watercolor activity. I wrote the letter W all over a piece of cardstock using white crayon. Then my daughter hunted for them by painting on the page. She loved this!
We tried these watermelon counting mats that I downloaded at From ABC’s to ACTs. I helped my daughter count raisins for each mat. She could recognize about half of the numbers from 1-6. She needed help counting groups of raisins higher than three.
This review activity was easily her favorite one of the week. I simply wrote letters on our plastic dinnerware with a dry erase marker. Then she named the letters as she washed them off. I have Growing Book by Book to thank for this brilliant idea!
I printed this free Alphabet Bingo from Crazy Little Projects. I would say it was a little too advanced for my toddler, even though she could name most of the letters. I think the problem is that the board was too small and crowded. But she did enjoy doing it together.
She was proud of her paper plate walrus. 🙂
This is from our set of free alphabet books. I love listening to her name all the pictures! “Wehm.”
Here’s another favorite – one of our letter books of songs and rhymes. Get yours free here.
I printed two sets of photo cards you can get at the end of this post. My toddler enjoyed finding matches and setting them aside.
Lacing cards are still extremely challenging for my daughter, so we did this one together. Shortly after I took this picture she was tired and asked me to finish it for her.
Both my toddler and her older brother (age 5) enjoyed making a paper plate whale. Check out In the Playroom for directions.
Finally, we used Do-a-Dot markers and dry black beans to make this paper plate watermelon.
We hope you found some fun learning ideas for letter W!
