I just love books like Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. They make learning fun, engaging, and definitely help the skills stick in their head. With fun rhymes, alliteration, and repetition, kids can easily begin to learn their ABCs and letter recognition. This Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Activity really plays on the book and drives home the skills you want the child/children to learn.

Invite your child to drop a few letter beads into the bottle, reading the letters as they drop them in. Add some faux hay to the bottle.
Use a pen to stuff it down in the bottle if needed. Add more letter beads, reciting the letters as they are dropped in. Add more faux hay and a few more letters.
Tear off 4 sections of crepe paper. Using 2 sections,wrap it around the lid and secure with tape.Attach to the bottle, the lid should still screw on despite the crepe paper attached.
Use tape to further secure if needed.
Using the 2 remaining sections, fold them in half then secure to the top with tape to create the leaves on the tree.
Fold tape into a small bundle and use a few sections to secure more foam letter beads to the leaves.
Invite your child to shake the bottle and discover the letters inside while exploring the book.
