This Letter Y Activity is a fun Yellow Search and Discovery game that parents and kids can play together. You can easily modify it for any color and letter!
Kids like to play games. That's no secret. From games like hide and seek to I Spy, kids are almost always up for a game that involves finding something. This Yellow Search and Discovery Activity is a perfect game for you to play with your kids that helps them understand two concepts such as colors and letters. In this case, it's yellow and the letter Y. You could also easily adapt this for B for Blue or R for Red.
For older kids, this may seem like such a preschool game, but you could expand it to find objects in and outside your home that go along with a unit study you are doing. For example, let's say you are doing a unit study on geology, your kids could go find rocks or minerals all of the same color.
If you wanted to change it up even more, you could do textures. Why not do S for soft or F for fluffy or R for rough? This would be great for kids that are super stimulated by textures.
