We keep discovering new ways to write the alphabet — and we love to do a few of our favorites every time too. Here are ten ways to make the letter T!
My Four ran outside to get some twigs, and he and his big sister made these. Later I gave two twigs to my Two (almost three), and he was able to turn them into a T without any trouble. A few months ago he couldn’t have done that.
You can get these Highway ABC card from Making Learning Fun— great for little ones who like to use toy vehicles! My daughter modeled it for you here. 🙂
My older kids made a T with their bodies. They were excited to see the picture.
I bought our first set of Crayola window crayons, and they were a big hit. My Four used my nice wash cloths to clean it off the window. I don’t know yet if they stain fabric… but the kids sure had fun.
We used black paint and wrote a T with toy tire tracks. Looks like I should have used more newspaper on the table. Do you know that when my oldest started painting I actually asked my friends if I should buy washable paint? I read somewhere that the colors weren’t as brilliant, so I though I should maybe get regular paint. After all, they can wear smocks, right? I may have been a bit delusional.
We made a T with my dot sticker page. I’ve made a lot of dot sticker pages, but this is the first one that uses clip art I created myself. I think it’s cute, although I’ve never seen such a short semi. You can get it here.
I told my Four and Five to go make a T with Tinker Toys, and they came back with these.
Finally, I gave my Four a copy of T’s of all Sizes. I think he’ll be ready for regular handwriting pages soon, but in the meantime we’ll keep doing these. He enjoys them, and the red dot is a good reminder of where he should begin each letter. You can get a copy in this post.
