Fun Ideas Friday – A New Game For You

Welcome to Fun Ideas Friday!

As I mentioned on Wednesday, the kids and I worked out this fun new game to practice the difference between lowercase b, d, p and q.  They can get awfully confusing, can’t they?  So, after spending a few weeks just focusing on each letter individually, we’ve enjoyed this game all week, combining all four letters.

My Children with our new creation.

At the bottom of this post, you’ll find a download link so you can play this game with your children as well!

Here's a game in progress.

The game download includes the game board, label with directions, game pieces, and four sided die.

I just adore these little animals, don't you?

In the above picture, you can see the game pieces and the four sided die.  When you roll, you pick it up and look to see what’s on the bottom.  That’s your letter.  Then you just move your adorable little animal (Hippo, Penguin, Giraffe or Owl) to the next instance of that letter on the game board.

An overview of a game in progress. Note: You are looking at it upside down here! 🙂

Doesn’t this look like fun?  Be warned:  This learning game comes with lots of giggles.   Don’t play it while the baby is napping!  😉

Another Gift For You!

What a cute game; we’ll definitely have to play it next week! I’ve really enjoyed looking over your blog today, and I now follow via Google reader (your RSS subscribe link isn’t working). I hope you’ll hop over to our blog and check it out too. I’m planning on posting some early reading activities this month.

    I didn’t even know I had an rss link! lol I think I made it work in the side bar. Would you be willing to check it out and let me know if that’s what you were looking for? And thanks for subscribing! I’m so excited 🙂

I love it! I’ll be using this to practice with my son who has a hard time differentiating between these letters. Thank you!
