Whew. We did it! We made it through a whole week of different alphabet activities every day.
Today I introduced Noah to Fishing for Letters and Play-Dough stamping.
For the stamping, I got out my alphabet stamps purchased at Wal-Mart for about $5 and a can of Play-dough. We talked about the stamp and the letter “a” and then Noah started stamping away. The texture of Play-dough is great for sensory play, and we also hit on fine motor, literacy skills, and practicing making the short “a” sound.
(By the way, why is it that no matter what colors you start with, Play-Dough always winds up morphing into that same pinkish gray color? It’s the same every time!)
