Little archaeologists sifting through the sand with a paint brush to find alphabet letters.
Taking on the role of an archaeologist looking for artifacts and bones in the sand or in this case searching for alphabet letters. It is a great activity to promote the learning of letter names and the sounds that they make.
So much fun playing and learning too!
What you will need?
You will need a large tray, coloured sand, alphabet letters and a paint brush.
I lightly buried the letters in the sand and Miss 3 used the brush to sift away the sand to find the letters. The excitement when Miss 3 found a letter in the sand!
Alphabet Archaeologist is a great activity to promote:
- Fine motor development – Control and manipulation of the paint brush
- Concentration – Attention, visualisation and memory
- Literacy – Developing an understanding of letter names and sounds
