Aluminum foil alphabet game in preschool

You just can’t end a day of exploring aluminum foil without playing a little game…

After doing a little foil texture painting and foil tearing and gluing, we played a little foil alphabet ball game. Wy started by scrunching a sheet of foil into a ball…

Next Wy tossed the aluminum foil on the alphabet carpet which I recently purchased for my circle time area from Target. But you could make your own letter cards and spread them out on the floor…

Each time the foil landed on a letter, Wy and I would shout out the name of the letter, “Hooray for the Letter J!”  We also looked for the letter “W” in Wy’s name and tried tossing the foil ball on the letter…

“Hooray for the letter W!”
