A great one to improve language building and fine motor skills and you will even have some shiny toys at the end of it!

Trying to teach your child to spell their name? In a box make as many parking lots as the letters in your child’s name. Then stick a letter per ‘parking space’ and also stick the same letters on matchbox cars. Now have your child park the car with the corresponding letter in the parking space. Great way to learn letter recognition!
