Why We Chose This Activity
So my 3 year-old is obsessed with riding his older brother’s bike and my 4 year-old spends a good amount of his outside play filling the driveway with chalk creations. We decided to merge the two interests.
Set-up couldn’t have been easier for this activity! Starting with the “A” create a letter road down the driveway or sidewalk with chalk. Leave a bit of space between each letter so that the road is nice and long.
Time to Play
Strap the helmet and jump on the bike. Have your child start behind the letter “A”. Call out a letter for your child to stop at on the road. Your child then rides to the appropriate letter and stops at that letter.
Return to “A” and play again.
This was a very simple but effective alphabet activity that works great for outdoor learning.
