Make this cardboard roll name worm in just a few minutes and let the kids learn to sequence the letters in their names!
All you need is cardboard rolls, markers and a craft knife. Cut the roll into smaller pieces using the craft knife:
Then add the letters of the names onto the rolls. I used two different colours for vowels and consonants:
I added some spots on the inside of the roll to help her know which side the thread must go through first, otherwise the letter is upside down:
We added an eye and tongue to make it look like a worm (kinda). Make it prettier by painting the rolls first.
Here my 5 year old is busy threading her name with a plastic string:
My 2.5 year old does not know how to spell his name yet. To make it easier for him, I gave him the wooden stick(not string) to thread his letters and gave him the letters in sequence:
He enjoyed the threading part, and the way the rolls go around the stick. This is good for hand eye coordination and fine motor skills development.
This is an easy, and frugal way to teach kids the sequence of their name. You can even sequence numbers and alphabet letters too!
