Alphabet Fun!

I have been busy getting ready for my presentation in Las Vegas this summer, and made some fun new games to share with you!

The first one is called Monster Munch!  This is a great game for the beginning of the year to help our sweet little babies understand that there IS a difference between a number, letter, symbol and word :)

image

My 6 year old LOVES to play around with this game!!  She makes little munching noises when she feeds the monster the letters. SO fun!

There are two options included for making the game.  The photo on the left shows it made with a nut can! I just cut the mouth out and cut a mouth with an exacto knife out of the nut can. 

You can also use a regular old gift bag!

You can purchase Monster Munch at my TpT store.

The next game I have for you is a fast paced, super fun card game!

It’s called Bubble Pop!

image

I guarantee you your kiddos will LOVE this game!

My daughter and I played FOREVER! (My dog, on the other hand, was not as impressed!)

You get three sets of cards in the pack – upper and lower case and picture cards for letter sounds.  You can mix and match all three games or just focus on one of the three.

You can find Bubble Pop at my TpT store!

I would love for someone to win each of these games!  Leave a comment below!  The first THREE people to comment will win! Be sure to leave your e-mail address!!

Wow! You guys are fast! Keep commenting and I’ll pick three more random people!!
