Learning letters can be tricky so we made this game of ABC Hoopla to try and inject a little fun into learning.
To make this you will need:
- 3 kitchen towel tubes
- Coloured tissue paper
- Sponge/felt letters or card letters A, B and C
- Coloured card
- Glue or double-sided sticky tape
- 9 old bangles
- 9 white sticky labels
- Black marker
First roll three old kitchen-towel tubes in coloured tissue paper. Next attach a sponge letter A, B or C with double-sided sticky tape to each tube. You could simply cut out a letter from coloured card and glue this on instead.
Draw and cut out something beginning with each letter on coloured card and glue this below each letter. We chose apple for A, bee for B and car for C.
Finally take nine old bangles. To each bangle attach a sticky label. On one side of each label write a capital A, B or C, with the corresponding lower case letter on the opposite side.
You are now ready to play!
Simply encourage your toddler to place each lettered bangle over the corresponding letter-tube. Hoopla!
