DIY: Preschool Reading Game

My son is NOT interested in indoor learning.  He will take a lesson on using shovels, drills, and even collecting rocks from the yard into a bucket before he will sit down and just learn the alphabet or for heaven's sake actually read a beginner book. So, we have tried to make a treasure hunt type game.  I involved Big sister by having her create the game 

You need:
Popsicle sticks (use a Michael's Coupon and they are like $1 for 200)
A marker
And old food container with lid (I used Crystal Light container)

-write beginner words on each stick
-type up papers with the same words
-have your child match the words at the table 
-hide them around the house and have him bring you the matches as they are found 

So far it's a success...slow going but going so that's progress!
