We may have a new favorite activity/craft: decorating names with...cake decorations!! I'll share the directions for this fun craft/learning activity in one second, but first...
A quick announcement: Remember to visit Kindergarten Kel, Krazy Kuehner Days, The Usual Mayhem, How To Run A Home Daycare, No Doubt Learning, Enchanted Homeschooling Mom and (on Feb. 8) Beg, Borrow, Steal for fabulous hibernation-themed FREEBIES, great GIVEAWAYS, and to learn more about my new Hibernation Ebook!!
Now, on to Name Decorating:
- glue (or frosting)
- cake decorations
- aluminum foil
1- Prepare the paper by writing (or printing) your child's name in bubble/block letters. Place a piece of aluminum foil under the paper so it doesn't stick to your table--preschoolers tend to use a lot of glue!
2- Let your child fill in the letters with school glue and pour/shake/sprinkle/place the decorations! If your child is likely to eat the glue, use frosting instead.
While my young preschooler worked on his name, his kindergarten sister worked on sight words (printable from The Moffat Girls).
Everyone had so much fun that they asked to do it again the next day!!
Do you have a favorite name-learning activity? I'd love to see it!
I may share at any of these parties!
