It may be as simple as tweaking a classic game just a bit, and "Voila!!" a new activity is born!  Just like this name game I set up for my preschooler.

My preschooler loves a good game of hide-n-seek, so I decided to add a little educational twist to help her learn the letters of her name.

Your child will love this playful name recognition game, too!

I gathered a few simple materials and told Little Sis that she was Going on a Name Hunt (because you know, that sounds so much better than, "Go find the letters I've hidden around the room.")

Post It Notes Name Game for Kids

To set up this name game, spell out your child's name on post it notes-- one letter per post it note.  On a separate sheet of paper, write your child's name so he/she can put the post-it note letters in the right order.

Hide them around the house.

Have your child go search for the letters and put them in order on their self-correcting sheet.

That's it!!  Be ready to hide the post it notes again.  Your little one will LOVE this name game!

Such a fun unique spin inspired by the game of hide-n-seek!
