If your kids are anything like mine, they love all things sweet and filled with sugar.
In fact, I have one little one that spent almost her entire third year of life trying to convince everyone around her that she needed cake.
The kind doesn’t matter as long as it’s sweet and covered in frosting.
Now, we obviously won’t be eating cake every single day, but we can start incorporating it into our alphabet learning with this beginning sound cake activity!
Making a cake with this activity is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Each cake covers a different letter of the alphabet and all 26 letters are included.
Your child will just need to match the uppercase letter, the lowercase letter, and the cake tier with the correct beginning sound picture on it to build their own delicious looking 3 tiered cake.
To use, you’ll need to print the pages and cut out each of the individual cakes.
From there, cut each of the beginning sound cakes into three pieces and run them through your laminator so that they stand up to little hands.
Then just set them out and watch your little ones learn as they build!
If you’d like to switch it up a bit, try printing these beginning sound cakes on magnetic sheets and use them on a cookie sheet or the refrigerator.
Or try starting out with just the letters in your child’s name! Have them not only build the cakes using the correct pieces but then also build their name when they’re done by putting the cakes into the correct order.
There are so many different ways that you could use this set, but regardless of how you decide to use them, your little learner will be working on their letter recognition skills, beginning sounds, size sequencing, and so much more with just this one activity!
