The ABC River

Clear a space in the room, and scatter your ABC cards in a random pattern along the center of the floor. The idea is to make it look like a river. Explain to your child that it’s a rushing river and that the cards are stepping stones. He’ll have to listen carefully to you as you call out letters and he steps from one letter to the next to get across.
