I have been so excited to make these activities ever since I saw it posted on Mrs. Cooley's blog. She used water bottle lids for hers. My mom, wonderful person that she is, brought me hundreds of little lids from the lab she works at. They are the perfect size! I used labels from Walmart – the garage sale circle kind – and small letter/number stickers from Michaels. I’m going to use a cricket to finish the rest of the number ones, since they are pretty limited on those sticker sheets. I think they are so so cute, and will make perfect workshop activities!
Ideas to use these lids for:
-ABC order with words/the children's names
-Patterning (use different colored stickers and have children create certain patterns - AB, ABB, ABC)
-Alphabet match up
-Alphabet caterpillar (put the letters in order)
-Counting caterpillar (put numbers in order, 1-10, even, odd, 5's, 10's)
She also brought me these little containers to store them in. Perfect fit!
