Adam loves the Alphablocks. As mentioned on Day 36 we buy the Alphablocks magazine which Adam regularly looks through. Ironically Adam can name more letter sounds than he can say words! So I wanted a game he could play using the Alphablocks.
We have a set of wooden animal dominoes which Adam only uses to drop into a box so I used them to attach cut out Alphablocks from the magazine.
I tried a variety of different methods to stick the Alphablocks onto the domino. Wood glue worked the best and once it dried I coated the whole domino with PVA glue.
I did the same for the box lid.
Adam was intrigued by the lid and pointed to each letter in turn.
We attempted a game of dominos but he is too young to fully understand how to play it.
He enjoyed finding the letters but his favourite activity was pointing to each Alphablock.
I imagine this activity will get a lot of use over the next few years and has been placed into a Busy Box.
