Make glue names and letters to explore letters plus learn how to write your name with glue!
We are joining in (when we can), in the Simple Play series initiated by Nurturestore.
The idea is to keep play and learning simple and fun. Each day in January, a specific play/craft/learning material is named and you let your kids play/create with that material, keeping it simple, thus frugal too.
Today’s material is Glue. We used the White Craft Glue, to write the kids’ names, and draw some pictures too. I also did a few letters of the alphabet, just to give you more ideas on how you could use this simple technique in learning too. (Tracing the letters with the finger, rubbing over each letter, naming them, matching the glue letter to the correct crayon letter etc.)
We let the glue dry completely, which took about 3 hours, placed a paper over the letters and rubbed over the letters with a crayon. For Lella, it was like magic happening before her eyes! Yet, so simple!
She did each one with only one color, but different colors could be interesting. Next time…
Such a fun way to use glue to learn letters and to write glue names!

Love it! I think my 4 year old would also find the “magic” fascinating! pinned
