Here are nine interesting ways to make the letter I. They’re great for preschool fine motor practice!
First we made a letter “I” with ice! These are very neat ice cubes – they don’t melt. We got them out of our Don’t Break the Ice game.
What a simple but very fun idea! My boys just loved tracing chalk letters with water and a paintbrush. Even my Two (going on three), who doesn’t write letters yet, really wanted to do this. When we were done the boys spent a good half an hour painting the whole chalkboard. And when they were done with this, they left their water and paintbrushes behind and my One gave himself a turn. Of course, he just painted the floor :(!
I gave my Two these five Duplo blocks to see if he could make the letter I on his own. He needed some help, but was proud of the final product.
My Four always completes one of these pages when we write our letters. Traditional handwriting pages are still a bit much for him. You can get your copy of this and other handwriting pages by visiting this link.
