This Q-tip Vowel Erase Activity is a unique and fun way to memorize and learn vowels.
My daughter (4) is currently learning the vowels (and consonants) of the alphabet with her Abeka k-4. And while they do fun activities and have this cute song about each vowel and its sounds (that I have stuck in my head), I figured it would still be fun and certaintly beneficial to practice memorizing them on our own.
I came up with this simple Q-tip Vowel Erase activity on a whim. We love using our Ikea easel board for writing, doing simple math problems and of course drawing. So I thought it would be a brilliant idea to use the board. However, I wanted something unique and make an “un-traditional” use of the easel board 🙂 And what’s better than using good old q-tips to create a fun activity!
See below how easy and simple it is to set-up this activity!

With the dry erase markers write all the letters of the alphabet (scattered and using different colors) on the white board. I added more vowels throughout the board for a longer activity. That’s it!
Rules are simple: The preschooler has to find, and erase using the q-tip, as many vowels are they can!

What is my child learning?
-Alphabet letters (specifically vowels)
-Writing (although kids are erasing the vowels, they’re making the same hand movement as writing)
-Cognitive skills (thinking, finding, looking, comparing, analyzing the letters)
-Fine motor skills (holding the thin q-tip)
*TIP* The vowels can certaintly be swapped out for consonants for more fun learning!
