Today, we name treasure hunt!
This is a rather simple activity. I selected some wooden letters and a few random items that happened to be within range. Traced them out on a piece of paper and made my way to the kitchen and found one of my pans to bury the items in under some rice.
Since this is my 4 year old’s first time doing this kind of activity I let him see the items already sorted on the paper, then asked him to add them to the pan and covered in rice.
Then he went hunting for his name in the rice! I also had big to small pom pom sorting. 😀
Digging a bit with his hands, he also used a little spoon.
He found the items one by one and matched them up on his traced paper sheet, naming the items as went.
All in all this was a very successful activity as he repeated it over and over again!
