I’m a little obsessed with the A-B-C’s. I collected Alphabet books (post on that one day). I love activities and songs that involve the alpahbet. Letters are just cool. As I always remind my son, “Letters make words, and word tell stories!”
Now I’ve found a cool game/craft that fills my alpha-fixation for our preschool activities.
A craft / activity kit with pop-ups, COLORGAMI brings a child’s coloring to life! There are several themed sets, but of course I wanted the Alphabet Pop Ups!
Our kit included the 26 letters of the alphabet, 26 associated pictures, and 4 markers. The letters pop up and the pictures slide into a slot in back, to create a 3-D art project – great for display! I’ve incorporated these letter crafts into our weekly preschooling activities! My son loved getting to use markers (a rare treat, highly supervised, after his last romp with a Sharpie!).
COLORGAMI is probably better for kids a bit older than him, because I had to help him with a lot of the coloring, and I had to rescue the pieces at times from some toddler rough-handling! 🙂 But he did color the worm on the apple himself – didn’t he stay mostly in the lines!? And as he practices with these crafts, he’ll just get better.
We were also sent the Life in the Ocean Puzzle Match game, which was perfect for our son! This is a unique memory game – instead of looking for two matching pictures, you search for the two halves of one image. They fit together like puzzle pieces. When all the matches have been made, you slide the sets together to create an underwater scene! So there are different aspects of play in this game! Our son loved it so much, he would not let me take my turn!COLORGAMI and Puzzle Match are created by Wowopolis, a family-owned, award-winning company that brings “WOW” to games and crafts and builds on timeless play patterns sparked by the imagination and creativity of kids!
