Wagon rides are a quintessential fall activity. We have a red radio flyer wagon and whenever we bring it out Rea absolutely loves it, so it is fitting that in our Fall on the Farm month we create a wagon out of the letter W! Teach your Lil’ Explorer all about the letter W and the sound that it makes with our W is for Wagon activity.

Talk about the sound a W makes with your Lil’. You can do this by making exaggerated W sounds and then naming multiple objects or things that start with a W like whale and wheel.
