We love the game Bananagrams, which is essentially Scrabble without a board.  We come up with lots of little activities to use the letters and work on our early literacy skills.

The other day, we tried something new.  As we were reading a book, we picked out an important word or two from each page and spelled that word out with our Bananagrams.  Very simple, and our preschooler found it fun and engaging.  Great way to practice letter recognition, as well as picking the main ideas out of a text.

Of course, you could simply use Scrabble letters to do the same thing, but my kids like that this game is stored in a zippered banana.  Priorities!
