A while back,I whipped up a little game for my kids to practice making words. I used a photo of them playing on the floor with it in this post over here, and several people have commented on it and asked about it.
The cards are actually name tags from this site. I printed them out, glued them to cardstock, and wrote in the name of the drawing on each tag. I laminated them so that my two year old wouldn't destroy them in the first 3.2 seconds. Then I wrote the letters on some clothes pins.
The kids make words by matching the letters on the card to the clothespins. It's an introduction to some sight words, some practice at letter recognition, and a real confidence builder for the child who can exclaim "Mommy, look! I spelled dog!"
