Sun Bleached Letter Matching and Sensory Play

My daughter loves anything that involves a hunt!  When I saw this post on Pinterest about sun bleached letter matching I knew we had to give it a try.  First, I gathered whatever magnet letters we had (I chose random letters), put them onto a black piece of construction paper which was placed on top of a baking sheet and then out into the sun for a few hours.


After a few hours of sunshine, this is how it looks:


I set up our water table with some shredded green paper which I had left over from our Shamrock craft and hid the letters in the shredded paper.  Tiffany had fun searching for the letters and matching them to the sun bleached letters on the paper.  




This activity helped with letter recognition and offered sensory play by including the shredded paper.  It was also neat to see how the sun bleached the letters into the paper!
