Preschoolers love learning ABCs with an alphabet hunt. This summer alphabet activity takes place outside in the water sprinkler! A fun way to move and learn!
This week the PLAYful Preschool theme is water! The team is excited to bring you fun, summer water play activities that are sure to be a hit with your kids. Check out all of the posts below.
My son absolutely loves learning outside and when water is added to the mix, he is one excited boy! Over the last few weeks, he learned numbers with water balloons, went on an alphabet hunt with a water spray bottle, ran through an alphabet obstacle course that included water and watered alphabet flowers!
This week we continued to learn letters while playing in the water. This time we used our brand new water sprinkler. Evan had so much fun!

- Water sprinkler (we use and love this one)
- Foam letters
I bought a foam lowercase letter puzzle from the Dollar Tree and use those letters. You can also use bath letters.
Set Up the Water Alphabet Hunt
Put your sprinkler in the yard and then place letters on the ground all around the sprinkler. That’s it!
Learning ABCs in the Water Sprinkler
I turned on the sprinkler and then I called out a letter. Evan went running into the sprinkler and searched around the ground for the letter I called. He ducked and jumped over the water spray until he found the letter he was searching for. Then he grabbed it and ran it over to me.
He had a blast! He told me this was one of the best activities we ever did. He even asked if we could do it again another day. Of course, we will!
