I love watching my 3 year old Granddaughter Alice during the day. We have plenty of play time, but I also like to add some learning time. While Alice is like a sponge, she needs variety to keep her interested. As a result I’m always trying to find new and unique educational tools that don’t break the bank! Check out EduKid Toys Magnetic Letter & Numbers bag from Kiddie Collection!!
So cute! First, the magnets arrive in a poly bag that has a handle! The bag makes taking the Magnetic’s with us super easy! Think about it, what house doesn’t have a fridge?
The letters and numbers are bright and colorful; they are also made with rounded edges! I love that! There are 72 pieces including 26 uppercase letters, 36 lowercase letters, along with 10 numbers. Perfect!!
Alice and I took a trip to Home Depot and bought an empty paint can. A trip to Michaels for ribbon and double sided sticky tape and we made a letter bucket. I can’t tell you how much fun Alice has with this bucket of letters!!
Alice will sit QUIETLY (helllloooo?? 3 years old AND quiet??) and play with her letters, spell words, and just PLAY!!!
Another great way I’ve been teaching Alice her letters involves another trip back to Michaels and I let Alice picks out a large wooden letter. We learn the sound the letter makes, we practice writing that letter and the part that Alice really loves is finding things that start with that letter! Then we glue everything onto the letter. I let Alice decide which letter we learn for the week; so we aren’t going in any sort of order. But it’s FUN and it’s pretty amazing what Alice will find that starts with the letter we are learning.
EduKid Magnetic Letters and Numbers is making it SUPER easy to learn the uppercase and lowercase letters too! I will put one letter; either upper or lower case; on the can and ask Alice to find the matching. I will spell out words and have her point to the word by sounding out the letters. It’s really the perfect learning set!
