10 Ways to Explore and Learn with Letters


We have really enjoyed doing our letter of the week and now that we have completed all 26 letters I'm highlighting a few of our favorites.  In addition, I am sharing letter activities from other bloggers who show how many fun ways their are to explore with letters!

Letter V: Came upon us during spring so we turned a couple of popsicle sticks into a letter V vase.


Here's what you'll need for this craft:

2 Popsicle sticks
Glue
Green pipecleaners 
Flower stickers
Construction paper

This was an easy, fun and springy craft. If you don't have flower stickers or pipecleaners your child  can draw the flower stems and flowers. Or you could choose to paint your letter V vase.

Letter N: Write the letter N on a piece of paper, and either you or your child depending on age, can trace the letter with glue.  Next, take some noodles and line them up along the glue.  We chose to dye our noodles but that's completely optional.


Here's what you'll need for this craft:
Noodles
Glue
Construction paper
Pencil/Marker
Food coloring (optional)
