Today I am sharing super fun Alphabet Zip Line activity that combines letter learning, fine motor skills, physics, and fun!
Note: This alphabet activity, and many more, are included in my book, 101 Ways to Teach the Alphabet.
To make an alphabet zip line, you will need the following:
- Printable Montessori Alphabet Tiles (or write your own letters on paper)
- Paper clips
Begin by finding a place to hang your string. You will need a high location that is accessible to your kids to tie one end of the string, as well as a low location to tie the other end. We strung our zip line from the top of our stairs to the TV cabinet in our living room.
Place a pile of letters and paper clips near the high end of the string. You can either call out a letter for your child to find, or you can allow your child to select a letter of his or her choosing.
Have your child – with help, if needed – put the paper clip over the string and then attach a letter.
Then the fun begins! Your child will let go of the letter and let it slide down the zip line!
Repeat with additional letters for as long as your child is having fun.
