"Invisible" Chicka Chicka 123

This activity was completely child led.  It was an idea J had a couple weeks ago after we finished playing with the invisible letters and numbers made from hot glue.  J and I were reading Chicka Chicka 123 by Bill Martin Jr., Michael Sampson, and Lois Ehlert before bedtime when J started placing the invisible numbers onto the corresponding numbers in the book.  I thought it was a rather brilliant idea, so I set up the materials again, but this time, I had my camera handy.

This activity could be done with any alphabet or number book, but Chicka Chicka 123 has been in rotation lately so we stuck with that book.

Chicka Chicka 123, invisible style!
Together we read the book while J placed the invisible numbers on the numbers in the book.

Since J is very protective of, and won't share the invisible letters and numbers, K took a turn looking at the book.

He looks so grown up here.
Taking a closer look.
J spends so much time with these invisible letters and numbers, so I am sure there will be plenty more play activities done with them in the future.  Be sure to check out the two simple sensory bins that we made using the invisible letters and numbers.
