We have another maze activity! Strengthen Alphabet recognition with this fun maze activity. And bonus, you can sing together while you do it!
Seriously, I’m loving mazes… Henry’s pretty good at them too, so they’re fun for both of us!
The Alphabet Maze
This time we worked on the alphabet, the order of the alphabet to be more specific.
First we used painters tape on the floor to create the maze.
Next we added the letters of the alphabet.
Instead of only putting the letters of the alphabet on the maze in order. This time I added in wrong letters if he took a wrong turn.
Henry never ever sings for me.
It wasn’t until he started preschool this past fall that he learned the alphabet song. And still its very rare for him to sing it to me.
I know he knows the song, but I wanted to put it into context to see if he’d know the order of the alphabet.
Bonus for me… This alphabet maze tricked him into singing the song for me! (hehe, I’m sneaky.)
And he does know his alphabet, all the way from A to Z.
I have several movies of him going through the maze over and over, singing the song. This is the best movie I got of it, though he messed up the end of the alphabet on this one.
But he did surprise me when he finished… he took a stab at doing the alphabet backwards! And I have to say he did pretty darn good!

(Please… excuse the little mess up I even made with the end of the alphabet too…)
