We love to find creative ways to write the alphabet! Today I’m sharing a set of ideas for making letter P.
It was easy to come up with ideas for making letter P – what a great letter!
You may have seen my letter writing stations for letter K. I decided to do the same thing for letter P. My Four had a hard time being patient when I was setting this up and couldn’t wait to get started. He was even willing to hop off his Big Wheel and come inside to do some work!
Since my Four knows his letters and sounds, this is a bit easy for him, but he still enjoys it. It’s actually the perfect handwriting activity for my Two (and the only one he does, so far).
My husband keeps a stash of peanuts in his office, and the kids visit him every morning for one. We raided the stash so my Four could fill this letter with them. If you have a peanut allergy at your house, you could always use packing peanuts.
After filling in the block letter, he worked at making the letter without a guideline. Here’s our popcorn P.
A paper clip P!
P is for play dough! Perfect!
Here he wrote the letter P in Parmesan cheese.
Writing letter P in peanut butter – yum! Another option is to write it in pudding.
Here he writes the letter P using a beginning handwriting page. I don’t think he’s using the best posture for letter writing in this photo. I struggle with helping my two lefties. The jury is still out on my youngest boy… what if all of the boys are left-handed? (2022 update: Out of our six kids, four are lefties, including this little guy!)
Here’s a level two page. He enjoys these.
He agreed to do just a few P’s on our level three page. I designed these for older preschoolers and beginning kindergartners and don’t insist on them yet. When he gets closer to starting kindergarten, we’ll work on them more.
