This bath time activity is part of the Wash and Learn series!  This week I’m proud to introduce a new member in the collaboration, Train Up a Child!  Be sure to click the links at the end of the post to see more early literacy bath activities by Bath Activities for Kids and Train Up a Child.

Setting up the ABC Find Write Erase Game

To set up this bath was super simple!  All I did was use a bath crayon to write A-Z on the bath tub wall.  Then I set up the bath tub drawing boards (click the link to see how to set them up!).  That was it!

Playing ABC Find Write Erase

To play, I’d call out a letter of the alphabet.  One of the kids would find the letter and point to it.

Next, they’d practice writing the letter on their drawing boards, either with their finger or with the end of a thick-handled paint brush.

 I helped as necessary to ensure they always wrote their letters from the top down.

After their letters were written, one child would get to erase the letter from the bath tub wall by painting it with water until it disappeared!

It’s really a super simple ABC game, but my two preschoolers loved it and it gave them some sensory play, and alphabet and writing practice all in one!
