Preschool Basics: Yarn (& Sand Paper) Letter Practice

I saw a version of this idea last month in FamilyFun magazine, but I decided to adapt it to give the girls an opportunity to practice forming letters!

  • Sand paper
  • Yarn
  • Scissors

1)  Cut several pieces of yarn in various lengths.  I cut four longer pieces and two short pieces.  Then, I just cut a few random sizes!

2)  Ask your child to make various letters on the sand paper.

You could also use this to review numbers or shapes or just give your child a bag of yarn scraps and let her create whatever she wants!  I'm thinking this would make an excellent Learning Bag...and you could also take it with you to a restaurant, appointment, etc.
