Alphabet Treasure Hunt

It is the end of the month {can you believe it?!}, so it is time to share what we have been up to with the monthly Poppins Book Nook book club.  This month's theme was Pirates!  
We checked out a few pirate themed books from our library and ended up doing an activity for, Shiver Me Letters by June Sobel; it's a cute book about a bunch of pirates looking for the letters of the alphabet.
After reading Shiver Me Letters I had the idea to make our own alphabet treasure hunt.  I made an alphabet board and paper punched circles out of yellow paper to be our treasure.  On each circle coin I wrote a letter of the alphabet.  

To set up our treasure hunt, I folded up a paper lunch bag and added in beaded necklaces and the alphabet coins.  I had my 7 and 3 year old wait in the kitchen while I went and hid the treasure in another room.

Then I sent them off to look for it!  Who doesn't love a good treasure hunt/ game of hide-n-seek?  Once they found it, we dumped the treasure out and matched the alphabet coins to the alphabet treasure hunt mat.

 If you would like to make your own Alphabet Treasure Hunt using our printable alphabet mat, get a copy here! There are two alphabet mats-- one has the alphabet in ABC order, the other one has the letters all scrambled up.  The scrambled up letter mat might be a good way to assess what letters your child does/ or does not know.  Enjoy! 

Have you had any pirate fun lately?

Next month theme is: What Will I Be When I Grow Up? See you then for another edition of the Poppins Book Nook.  Until then, take some time to see what other book club participants read and did this month....

I love the skewer stacking, but they are all so fun and creative! What a special material to use!

The ABC map looks great! We may use it soon as we formally begin Kindergarten, just as a fun review for my youngest girl. I hadn't seen this book yet. Thanks for sharing.
