As if Gold Glitter Play-Doh wasn’t enough . . .
Okay, I admit it. Though you’d never know it by the way I dress, I do love a little bling. This activity is pretty self-explanatory, but I’ll throw in a couple ideas to make it easier than usual. First I used chalk to draw the letter g on black construction paper. Next, I handed over the glue bottles to Noah (5 with Down syndrome) and Bella (3), and they traced the letters with the glue. I was really surprised on this step because Noah did a beautiful job of staying mostly on the line. Bella had lots of blobs and gaps. I gave them both paintbrushes, and they went back and spread the paint along the G. This was a great way to maximize the time and minimize the effort of our craft time. We can use all the sensory play and fine motor help we can get. Finally, I turned the glitter top to the sprinkle holes and let the kids sprinkle it on the G themselves. They loved that.
I think this one will “stick” (I crack myself up) with them a while – who can forget a gold glitter G?
