Make an alphabet scrapbook
Buy an inexpensive scrapbook from a local stationery supplier or the supermarket.
Mark the top of the first page with a big letter A
Continue through the scrapbook marking each page with the next letter of the alphabet.
Spend some time with your child finding objects and discussing what letter they start with. You can either choose to search for objects that start with just one letter - so lets find things that start with the letter 'A' - or go on a trip and gather lots of different objects from the same place.
Take photos too of objects that you can stick into a scrapbook - like Grandma, a favourite toy or an elephant at the zoo! Print out your photos on plain paper at home if you can. Cut pictures out of old magazines too.
Glue or sellotape your objects and photos into your scrapbook on the correct letter page.
You can then have quiet afternoon time going through your scrapbook on another day learning letters and looking at or touching the objects in your scrapbook.
You can make a scrapbook of different animals too and under your pictures write the sound that the animal makes, the name of it's babies, where they live. For example: dog would have woof / bark, puppies and kennel somewhere on it's page!
Or a scrapbook of different colours. A whole page of yellow things or red or orange!
