Spelling with wooden letters
This activity is such a simple one. Simply write some words on a piece of paper and give your child some wooden letter. Your child can then make the words with the wooden letters. This is a great early literacy activity which introduces children to simple, short words.

She enjoyed sounding out the letters and producing the words. She became excited when she realised she was reading!
Make this a bilingual activity by spelling words from another language!
We used the wooden letters from this set:
I also found a set of wooden letters without the spelling boards:
