Using legos to help spell

Hands on spelling idea
On big legos write the whole word your child needs help learning, then using the little legos to write out each letter. Place all little legos together in a pile and have your child find the right blocks to spell out each word. You can make this harder by taking out all big blocks and just give the small letter ones. Call out a word and have your child spell each word. 
We used permitted marker to write on our blocks and that stayed the whole time we played and was easy to wipe off after but you could use labels and write on that then place on the blocks. 
We like to do this every time we get a new spelling list from school and again right before taking spelling test.

Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
