My son loves playing with dump trucks and rocks, so I came up with this dump truck alphabet rocks activity. It was great way for him to move and learn while playing with his favorite toys.
What child doesn’t love to play with rocks? This is one of the cutest ways I have seen to help kids learn the alphabet. It would also be a fun way to learn how to spell simple words. Pull out the paints and help your child create their very own Alphabet Rocks with this tutorial from Momtastic.
What does the alphabet have to do with rocks? Collect 26 rocks and paint each one with a letter of the alphabet for your very own alphabet rock collection. This activity offers an educational double whammy: As your kid paints each letter on a rock, he'll practice letter formation and work his fine motor skills, and once they're done and dry he'll practice learning the letters and their sounds as you turn the rocks into a letter learning game. Any excuse to get outside and enjoy a little active, energetic playtime with your child is thumbs up in our book!
