Alphabet Soup

We have some lovely letters for letter and word exploration. As the girls were playing in their kitchen a while ago, I gathered them up. I also had a big black pot, perfect for soup.

Daisy began to put the letters into the pot. The magnetic teaching tiles stuck to the inside and outside of the enamel pot. Daisy immediately began making words. I supported her word making when asked.

She added her wooden letters and letter stones, enjoying the ‘plonk’ and ‘thud’ they made in the pot.

Next, it was off on an ingredient hunt…no she did not add ice-cream. However, she did add carrots and cucumber!

Finally, to mix it all up, Daisy borrowed a big wooden spoon.

Yes, you can see some odd Halloween decorations in the background. We did this a while ago and I forgot to post it. A witch’s hat was handy and the alphabet soup was suddenly a potion that needed chanting and singing to accompany it. The only thing that came to my mind was Shakespeare; “Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble.” Daisy came up with alternatives which included a mishmash of what she was hearing from books at home and daycare.

Alphabet soup served up for Rose, Daisy and I. Yum!

And Miss Mischief enjoyed helping with the cooking.

  1. This reminds me of the book Stone Soup. This is such fun, interactive learning for your daughter. You are engaging the whole brain with the addition of the costumes and props and language. Thanks so much! Carolyn

  2. Your pictures were so cute. My 2 year old and 4 year old love playing with our magnetic letters and with puzzle letter pieces. I will have to set them out sometime near their play kitchen and see what happens. πŸ™‚
