  3. Pick a letter out of the bowl and call it out. If your child has that letter on their card, they can cover it with a small item.

  5. As an extra challenge for children who are ready, have your child come up with a word for each letter you call out.


Since toddlers aren't developmentally ready for Bingo, here's an activity to enjoy together. Find pictures of animals and make the animal sounds with your child. You can also slowly make letter sounds. Play this way, repeating sounds until your toddler loses interest.
