Learning letters with bath paint

Lilly has been learning about letters at school and is learning how to write her name, so last night I decided to use our bath paint mentioned in my April favourites post.


We started off with spelling and writing her name on the wall, I wrote it as the bath paint isn't the easiest to use. She seemed to enjoy watching and learning through this so decided to start writing letters on the wall and getting her to tell me what letter it was. 

After she told me the letter I got her to try and think of words that begin with that letter which worked really well. Se was able to come up with some words for all the letters I wrote down for her. She did get a little confused with C and K, when I asked her for an animal that began with C she said Kangaroo but I explained as best I could and told her that it was a good try too.

We played with the paint for a good 20 minutes which kept Lilly ammused and was teaching her at the same time. It was so nice to see her enjoying learning and it's so good to see her inproving too. 

How have you taught your little ones letters?

  9. I never knew there was such as a thing as bath paint. We've black tiles so I don't think they'd work. Great idea though. My eldest knows her letters, the middle lad won't talk never mind say the alphabet haha
