Elise and I love the book, Chicka Chicka ABC. Even when we’re not reading it, we could be singing it while we fold the laundry. It’s just so catchy! Chicka Chicka ABC is a great book for early learners because it is a truncated version of the full book and keeps interest throughout the short story.
Coconut Tree Craft Set Up
I came up with this coconut (or palm) tree you see in the picture. It was a quick craft and is so versatile for our book activities. We’ve used it for treasure hunts (see below), beach-themed learning, and so much more. If you’d like to make your own coconut tree craft for kids, here’s how.
For this little bit of fun, I also used:
- a wooden crate (repurposed from a Melissa and Doug toy)
- basket filler
- foam letters (we used uppercase)
- Chicka Chicka ABC book or Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (a favorite!)
Learning Prompt for Chicka Chicka ABC
After we read the book, she started taking out the letters and singing the “Chicka Chicka chant” as we call it. She would sing, “A towd B and B towd C, I gonna race you to da top of da coconut twee.” It makes me smile to hear it, friends.
We also used this little tree to set up a treasure hunt for toddlers. Even the adults had fun with this, so check it out!
