Bring new life to your LEGO Duplos stash by embellishing them with colorful letter stickers. Adding alphabet stickers to your LEGO Duplos is a playful way to talk about the ABC's, and creates many new ways to learn and play with them. Practice letter sequencing with a game of What is Missing? like we shared a few weeks ago, or practice Name Recognition!
Grab several LEGO Duplos-- enough to spell your child's name. Place a letter sticker on the side of each LEGO Duplo. When finished, place the LEGO Duplos in front of your child and talk about the letters you see. Tell him/her that those are the letters that spell his name!
Either direct your child by telling him which letter to find, or use this as a way to see if your child knows how to spell their name.
Encourage your child to build his/her name interlocking the blocks horizontally.
Such a great and simple way to use LEGO Duplos to practice such an important skill-- recognizing your own name!
