Name in Bed Puzzle & Name Writing Activity

This name activity combines a little hide-n-seek with name learning fun!  And it is perfect to go with this month's Virtual Book Club book Madeline!

The kids in Madeline all sleep in beds lined up in a row.  Sometimes it's fun to take your "learning activities" out of the actual school room and into a crazy place, like the bedroom!  Or, if you're in a school, bring a blanket or two and make a giant bed in your classroom!

This activity is quick and easy to set up, and loads of fun to play with!

Simple Supplies:

* Each kiddo's name pieces (see step 1!)

* blankets or beds

* pens, pencils, or markers

Easy How To:

1- Prepare the name pieces by cutting a sheet of paper in half lengthwise.  Write the children's names across the paper, and then cut out each letter in their names.

2- Hide the pieces in the blanket!

3- Let everyone find their name!

4- Let each child assemble their name, choose a writing utensil, and trace their name.

5- If everyone wants to, do it again!

This month's Virtual Book Club's book is Madeline!
