On five big shopping bags, write the letters d, t, b, p, and s with a Crayola® Washable Marker. If the designs on the bags are distracting, write the letters on white paper and attach it to the bag with Crayola® School Glue.
Find familiar objects such as these and mix them up in the box. Letter t: towel, telephone, tape. Letter b: ball, book, block. Letter d: doll, duck, drum. Letter s: sock, sea shell, stapler. Letter p: paper, puppet, potato.
To play Box and Bags: With one or two friends and an adult, name each item. Figure out from its sound which letter the word begins with. Place the object in the bag with that letter on it. Sort all the objects.
