My three year old has difficulties with gross motor planning with his speech, he knows what he wants to say but his ability to form the words just isn’t quite there yet. This Alphabet Flash Light Game is one of the many games that we play to help him practice making different sounds.
Even if your child does not have a difficulty with speech this game of Seek and Shine is a fantastic way to work on skills such as letter recognition!
Items Needed for an Alphabet Flash Light Hunt
** we found our letters already cut out and in the bag at Target in the Dollar Deals section.
How to Play
Setting up play for this game takes 5-10 minutes and the rules follow a childhood classic of hide-n-seek. While your child covers their eyes hide the letters around a room. We didn’t hide ours too well because I knew the pronunciation part of this game would be frustrating for my little guy and I wanted to keep it light and fun for him.
Once all your letters are hidden, give your flash light to your child, and play! Let your child use the flashlight to spot the letters. The flash light is by far my son’s favorite part of this game!
Once they have found a letter have them identify the letter (or sound of the letter) that they have found and return the letter to their treasure bag.
Once you child thinks they have found all the letters take them out of your treasure bag and together go over which letters have been found. Continue this process until all the letters have been found! Super simple and and a fun way to spend time together!
