A LeapReader Kids Party Full of Fun Reading Activities
Sawyer is in second grade and an voracious reader. And my preschooler Priscilla is dying to catch up. She sees her brother reading and learning new exciting things from his books and tries to sound out letters and read along, too. So when we were invited to host a LeapReader™ “Ready, Set, Read” Kids Party for Leap Frog, I jumped at the chance.
Our LeapReader “Ready, Set, Read, & Write” Party
We had so much fun practicing reading and writing with our new LeapReader™ products.
The kids have loved practicing reading with LeapReader™ products in the past. But we were really excited about LeapFrog’s new writing component of their new LeapReader™ books and workbooks. After using their other LeapFrog products to just point to words and images in the books, they were surprised and excited to see that their new LeapReader™ “pens” actually made marks on the Talking Words Factory Writing Workbook. It motivated them to practice their writing skills much more than just typical worksheets.
LeapReader™ also sent along lots of fun “Ready, Set, Read & Write” party ideas. Here’s some tips for you to throw your own reading themed kids party…
How to Host Your Own “Ready, Set, Read & Write” Kids Party
- Invite Your Guests!
LeapFrog has some cute invitations for you to download to invite all of your little guests. Try to make sure that all of your guests are at about the same level in their reading to make it easier and more fun. The LeapReader™ is recommended for ages 4 through 8.
- Get to Know Your LeapReader™.
Make sure to familiarize yourself with the many LeapReader™ options and books before the party starts. The LeapReader™ library includes over 150 books, maps, flash cards ,audio books, music albums, and more. So load up on the fun and make a plan for what you’ll have the kids focus on during the party.
- Plan Some Alphabet Themed Snacks.
Make sure to plan some snacks for happy kids. And make them alphabet themed, too! Try using letters instead of numbers for some early learning with mini pancakes. Or cut some fruit into letters and let the kids play with food.
- Include Other Alphabet and Reading Activities.
Make sure to have other alphabet activities if you don’t have enough LeapReaders for each child. There are lots to choose from among these ABC Learning Ideas.
- Have Some Sensory Fun, too.
Set up a sensory tray for kids to practice writing their letters when it isn’t their turn with the LeapReader™. Or set up a treasure hunt alphabet activity for some messy fun.
