When Tiffany first started playing around with the straws she immediately made the letter "T." Anytime she sees the letter "T" she says, "that's my name!" She then made a capital "I" and a lower case "i."
After playing with letter shapes I asked Tiffany to put up the straws according to size. I had already cut up the straws into different lengths. The funny part about this is when she was lining them up she said, "this one is 10 units long!" I have no clue where that even came from!! These little ones are smarter than we think!!
My 8 year old got in on the fun with measuring too.
During the same time Tiffany was playing with the straws and contact paper my son happened to be playing with his Lego mini figures. He had an idea to line up his mini figs on the contact paper. I told him they probably wouldn't hold. The verdict.......some fell off while others stayed up just fine!!
I would love to hear how you enjoy contact paper with your kiddos!
