Alphabet Soup Playing Alphabet Soup is a really fun way to expose your little one to letters. There are tons of great variations on this game, but for the original version you'll just need toy alphabet letters and a large kitchen pot. Simply dump the letters into the pot and let your child play around, stirring the “soup” with a spatula or practice scooping up the letters with measuring cups, asking them to name each letter. You can also try this in the bath with waterproof letters and some small bowls. With so many variations, it's easy to switch up this alphabet game to keep it fresh for your kiddos.
