Quiet Activity Idea: Felt Alphabet

We generally struggle to find activities that will occupy the kids during church services on Sunday.  I lug a large tote bag filled with different items each week and pray that we can keep them entertained enough for me to actually listen during the meeting.
A little activity I put together has stood the test of time for keeping Buddy occupied. I cut out some felt letters using a few different colors of felt.  He becomes totally engrossed in laying out the letters (which stick great to the cushioned seats in our chapel).
We also take turns spelling words for each other and impressing our fellow church goers with Buddy's amazing reading skills. The family that sat behind us this last Sunday told me that they were thoroughly entertained.
When play is over, I just crush all the letters up into a ball, place them in a baggy and toss them into my tote bag.  Just a little tip for some quiet play.

Have a Happy Day!

  3. What a great idea! SO much less noisy and cumbersome than a board game.
