Maddie is at the age where she’s excited about learning her letters. To break up the day, I’ve begun creating little activities for her to do. This was one of them. This is such a simple idea that you could duplicate it with many different materials.
I chose colored popsicle sticks*, star foam stickers, and a paint/permanent marker (black). The popsicles were given to us by our friends at CraftProjectIdeas.com! The star foam stickers came from Michaels.
The instructions are pretty self-explanatory here. Just stick the sticker onto the top of the popsicle stick. You could also hot-glue it to make it stay better, but the backing on the stars was good enough. Write the letters of the child’s name onto each star. The lighter stars obviously work better here. Don’t forget to make a “name guide” popsicle stick so the child will know how to line up their popsicle sticks! I stored ours in a ziplock bag. So easy!
That’s it! I hope you enjoyed this post and will get to make some with your child! =)
