>Going to be spending some time in the car? Play the alphabet license plate game.
Most license plates have numbers and letters. Watch license plates and ‘collect’ all the letters from the alphabet. Start by looking for the letter ‘a’. Once you have found that, go on to ‘b’, and on through the whole alphabet.
Make it challenging: Take only one letter from each license plate. In other words, you can’t take the letters ‘a’ and ‘b’ from the same license plate.
Make this a family activity: Everyone can work together to find the letters, or you can play with teams.
This activity promotes visual identification skills as well as literacy.
