One of Big Brother’s favorite Christmas presents this year was a Thomas the Train flashlight he got from my parents. He has used it nonstop for the last 2 days. We finally had to take it away on Christmas Night because he wouldn’t go to sleep!
I had the stomach flu yesterday and now Big Brother has it…so we are trying to find creative ways to stay sane and still take it easy.
Due to his new found love of flashlights, I thought this little game would be fun!
|1. Hang up the alphabet using the painter’s tape (so it doesn’t take off the paint on your wall) in a room that can be pretty well darkened.|
|2. Arm your little one with a flashlight!|
|3. Get started! First have your child point to a letter on the wall with the flashlight and tell you what the letter name is. Next, add a new spin on the game by calling out a letter and having your child use the flashlight to point to it.|
This game was a HUGE hit. We’ll be doing this one again for sure…I’d also like to hang up some number cards and try it with that.
