Hello letter L! Typically I start the blog off with my outdoor sensory bin however, This was a short, and rainy, week so we didn’t get a chance to play with it. You can check out the lion alphabet match flash cards here.
I LOVE this activity for so many reasons.
- Focus, patience, persistence
- Fine motor, visual motor
- Problem solving
- Hands on
The list can go on! I got this huge pack of fabric squares from Amazon as well as the clothes pins. You can find wire shelves at the Dollar Tree. Add them to a sensory bin with a little water and soap and have the kids wash and hang the laundry!
This is an activity I began to do every year since 2019 for letter L week. It is so much fun and I can’t believe the leaf is still in there!
I have the kids pick a leaf from outside. Making sure it is completely dry, I place it on the page and ask them to name it and to tell me why they picked that leaf. Why is it special?
Scavenger Hunt pages for the win! If you’ve read my last few posts you know how much I rave about these. They are so much fun, and can be assembled in a variety of ways.
I remembered we had this little washing machine stored in our shed, so decided to use that for a visual element. I placed a tray with blue rice (“water”) inside of the machine with the hidden polaroids.
One at a time the kids came up and picked out a polaroid and matched it to their page. The rest of the kids had to find that same image scattered on the table and match it as well.
Yet another winner in my book! The second staple to my simple curriculum planning 😂. Open ended play has so many benefits, I go over them in my letter K blog. I love that all ages of the class (2 1/2-5) are interested in this activity and each kid does a completely different thing. A great rainy day activity for some peace and quiet. 👍🏻

Also a free download in the learning library! We have these honeycomb steps for our outdoor play area, but they made a great washer and dryer 😂
