This alphabet seek-n-find is a great tool to learn your letters & have fun doing it! I used my Kool-Aid dyed rice to make this extra fun.

How We Did It

Seek-N-Find Alphabet Tube

Start by collecting your alphabet beads, rice, and tube. If you'd like, use a funnel to add a small amount of the rice to the tube. (Our funnel is silicone and collapsible. It doubles as a toddler toy in our house...if I can't find it in the kitchen, it is usually in V's play house. So using the funnel for us was a must!)

After adding the rice, add about 5-7 letters, then some more rice, and then some more letters, and so on and so forth until you fill the container up about three-quarters from the top. This part is definitely an activity for a toddler to do because it is okay if it gets a little messy and the letters get mixed up.

But this next step is a mama step: Seal the lid shut with hot glue and wait until completely cooled before handing off to your little one.

Next, print out the alphabet card. We chose to laminate ours (clear contact paper works the same if you do not have access to a laminator), so that we could use our dry erase crayons and mark off the letters as we located them in the tube.

This activity is a great busy bag activity because it is nice and small. I have the tube, the printable, and a dry erase crayon in a baggie and keep it right in my diaper bag. It holds V's attention when we are somewhere and have to wait, such as a restaurant, in the store, or in line at the bank.

Have fun on your Seek-N-Find scavenger hunt!
