TABLE TOP LETTER FUN

To help your child learn letters it is always best to start
with the letters in their name.

RAISED LETTERS
Help your child connect with letters through his sense of touch. Print large letters on index cards, then cover the letters with a glue lines. Let the glue harden. Have your child feel the raised letters with his fingers.
Variation: Add food coloring to your glue to make the letters “pop”.
 
YARN LETTERS
Create letter cards like above but after the glue has been applied, cover the glue lines with pieces of yarn.
 

TABLE TOP LETTERS
Use masking tape to print your child's name on the top of a table. Have your child trace over the letters with their fingers, while you say the name of each letter.
 

LETTER PRINTS
Give your child a piece of paper to lay on top of the masking tape letters. Then help them peel off the paper from a crayon. Next, show them how to lay the crayon sideways and rub across the paper to make a print of their name.
 

COVERING THE LETTERS
Give your child some small objects and have her cover the masking tape letters with the objects. Examples of small objects: cheerios, raisins, buttons, pennies, cottonballs, etc.
