since it is m week we’ve been sorting by color. we’ve noticed that in the tens of milk lids there are, there is only one brown lid. come on, let’s drink some chocolate milk!

the next phase of this activity is arranging them into words, letter groups, abc order, etc. for some of our kids we explored spacing between letters. learning that when there is a “finger space” between letters that means they are different words. sometimes it was fun to do that on purpose. like a joke. hee hee hee.

we noticed how many letters can become other letters simply by turning them.

kevin can become keviz and can easily become kevin again! more funny stuff.

  2. Loved this idea. Children in our pre-school donated lids in a variety of colors and sizes. They would use daily to make thier name and simple words such as cow and pig.

  3. I love milk cap ideas. I have saves a gazillion of them. I purchased a 1 1/4 circle punch so I can punch just about anything and mod podge it to a cap. We have done letters (upper & lower case), numbers, shapes, animals.etc. I have made matching games & patterning games, too! Keep the ideas coming!!!

  4. Love this idea. My famiilies brought me bags of lids after Christmas and I now have such an overflow so I am going to “borrow” this idea. thanks
