We  glued letters to the inside of our old juice lids for some hands-on learning this week.  (You could put shapes, numbers, upper/lower case letters, etc.)

The caps are the perfect size for little hands to grab and can be used for so many different things.

Today we were working on letter recognition with my youngest cutie, and spelling with my oldest (It’s more fun than traditional spelling tests).

When we need a little break, we make towers out of the lids.  It’s so fun to watch them come crashing down.  The cuties don’t even notice they’re practicing counting or spelling as they stack the caps.  “Look, my tower is up to ten!”

I’m amazed at how many different activities we’ve been able to do with such simple materials.  Feel free to share what you end up doing with your old caps!
