Sanity Saver: Alphabet Train

Part two of the new blog series Sanity Savers designed to help keep your kiddos happy while you get dinner ready…

After a particularly rousing episode of Blue’s Clues, O wanted to make his very own alphabet train. To make your own, simply have your kids lay out letters on the floor.

Then let them run around finding things that start with each letter. We started with “airplane” for “a”.

Then worked our way to horse, ice cream truck, jet, and “kangaroo” for “k”.

I did mention we got things from all over the house right? Here’s “yam” for “y”.

We did it! We filled out the entire alphabet train! “V” was trickiest for us, we ended up using a ball and calling it “Venus”. I was really surprised by O’s creativity in findings things I wouldn’t have thought of for some letters, like finding an ice cream truck.

The best part was at the end, O insisted that he sit on “o” and I sit on “m” for mommy!
