I’ve been wanting to make this set of upper and lowercase alphabet matching rocks for Charlie for awhile now. He is a little rock collector. Wherever we go he has to scoop up some rocks to bring home. I have no clue where his collection is at but he is sure proud of it.
Making it is super easy and we had so much fun with it. I picked up this big bag of river rock on a garage sale site, but you could even use the rocks your little ones collect to make it less costly.
Paint or write with marker. I used these Liquid Chalk Markers from Crafty Croc because I thought they were awesome markers, but my original plan was to paint the alphabet on. I wrote out the upper case letters and then the lower case letters.
We use the rocks for so many activities. I am also putting stickers on some of them with an object that begins with that letter sound. Maggie is also able to read some words on the rocks. I think their favorite activity though is writing on the rocks themselves.
We also have a lot of fun using the rocks to form the letter shape.
