Disappearing Letters

Dip your finger in a cup of water, and quickly trace a letter on a clean chalkboard. Then, ask your child to identify it before – poof! – it disappears. This can be fun if you have a couple of little ones in on the game. They can take turns trying to stump each other, drawing a letter and seeing if the other child can guess the letter before it evaporates.
