What is included within this Alphabet game?

One page of printable to give lots of fun!

We have two versions of the game for you. This is because we know that it can be difficult to print out in color, so we have created this bring me game in black and white for you as well.

That means that if it is a little expensive for you to print in color, you have an alternative.

Ways to play the bring me game

There are a few ways that you can play the bring me game with your children:

Bring me an item

This is the traditional version of the bring me game, and it is wonderful for helping kids to recognise their letters, as well as making those connections between the letters on their page, and the items around them in the real world.

  1. Print out the sheet using the link below (scroll down to the button, join our free Time to Pee membership club and download from the site),
  2. Ask your child (or class) to bring you something beginning with the letter you choose. Mix it up a bit for older children in particularly. You can do the letters in order to help teach the alphabet too. Prompting your kids, and asking them what letter is next. You can even ask them to point to the letters, tell you what the letter is, and then choose that one. You can use the letter choice as a learning opportunity without them even knowing it is one! 😂
  3. Off your child goes, and then brings you back an item with that starting letter; cross off that letter as done,
  4. Move on to the next letter, and
  5. Continue until you have finished all the letters on the page.

This is such a simple, but really effective little idea for kids – they’ll have loads of fun doing it with you, and they are working on their literacy skills at the same time.

Alphabet game: The treasure hunt!

If you would like to try something a little different with this game then how about giving this a go instead?

  1. Print out THREE versions of the sheet, so you have three copies of all the letters,
  2. Cut out each of the letters, and hide around the room or anywhere in the house, or if it is good weather, how about in the garden too?
  3. While you are hiding them, make a note on one of the spare sheets where you have hidden them. This is to make sure you don’t forget where they all are *been there, done that*
  4. Use the final sheet of the three you printed as a reference to ask your child to bring all of the letters to you
  5. You can either:
    1. Get them to bring them to you in alphabet order,
    2. Think of words that they can make with them – and tell you what they are. This is good to do with CVC words that only have one of each letter in of course, e.g. CAT, PIN, MUD, etc,
    3. Do them randomly just because!
  6. Once you have them all, you can get your child to put all the letters in order, or alternatively make some words with them for a bit of added fun. How many can they make with the letters they have?
