Letter "Hh" Week

Let's HOP right into letter Hh!

Happy Hippo

Happy Hippo Trail Mix

There's really no right or wrong way to make this snack.  Just toss in a little of this and little of that and you'll have a happy, happy toddler!  Here's what we did...
  • Honey Nut Cheerios
  • M&M's
  • Raisins
  • Banana Chips
  • Pretzels
Letter Hunt:  Your letter bucket is filled with a toy horse, house, helicopter, hippo, hog, hamburger, hat, etc.

Fine Motor: a "HOLE" lot of fun!
Use an old puffs container, or something similar, and punch holes in the lid.  Decorate it however you wish! Place hole reinforcers around the holes, and color with markers.  Place the lid on, and have your smartypants put the matching color of stem into the corresponding hole.

Coloring Page: Print off the Hh is for HOUSE coloring sheet on the Fisher-Price website. Click on the link: http://www.fisher-price.com/us/ms7/alphabet-coloring-pages.asp

Books: Below are a few suggested readings for your little ones.  You should be able to find most of these books at your local library or around the house.
  • Greedy Grumpy Hippo by Stuart Trotter 
  • The Hiccuping Hippo by Keith Faulkner
  • The Happy Hedgehog Band by Jill Barton
"Little" Tip of the Week: 
One of our favorite things to do is use sidewalk chalk to make HOPSCOTCH.  It's a great activity to incorporate the letter "Hh", and includes number recognition, gross motor development, and, of course, PATIENCE, as you wait your turn to HOP!  Have some fun at the end of the week, and have a "Happy Hair Day".  Let your smartypants get creative with their hair!

Hope you had a hopping good time!
