If you are a regular here, you know the preschooler and I have been working through the alphabet, one vehicle at a time with tons of vehicle activities for A-Z.
This week we worked on preschool activities for the letter “H” — using helicopters, of course!
Before we started, I printed out 16 identical helicopter pictures and colored them to have 8 matching pairs.
For each pair I wrote a capital “H” on one helicopter and a lower case “h” on the other.
Then I asked him to put all the capital “H’s” together and all the lower case “h’s” together. He had fun flying them around before landing them in their new groups.
Finally, we counted all the paper helicopters.
Then we moved on to a collection of toy helicopters.
I made number cards for numbers 1-10 and had him land his toy helicopter on each “helipad” when I called the number.
“Fly your largest helicopter over to number 8,” I’d say, and he would select the correct helicopter and then search for the right helipad to land on.
He had a great time listening to my clues, so we wound up doing this activity a few times.
For older kids check out the helicopter landing site word activity at Boy Mama Teacher Mama.
(There is just no way to get a non-blurry picture of a helicopter in motion!)
Our last activity was our helicopter craft. Be sure to check out the post to see how we made our very own helicopters!
We have been having so much fun with all our vehicle alphabet activities!
