Can you believe we are almost half way through the letter of the week activities? This Letter L activity is really fun, not at all messy and can be used again and again. YAY! Of course we can get back to messy next week with the Letter M activity.
Letter L Activity: Lacing
What you need: Letter L, construction paper, glue, paint, a hole punch, yarn and pipe cleaner.
To prepare the Letter L Activity; print out the Letter L, glue it on a piece of construction paper and wait for the glue to dry. Once it’s dry, cut the letter out leaving a boarder of construction paper. Punch holes about 1 inch apart all the way around the Letter L.
Cut a long string of yarn. At one end attach a small pipe cleaner. This will act as the needle. I cut a pipe cleaner in half and folded one end over the yarn, squeezing it to hold the yarn in place.
Start lacing to show your little one how it works, then hand it over and let them do the rest.
Tips (to maximize learning): 1. While they work talk about what words start with the letter L. Have fun saying the L sound and finding a word that begins with that letter. Can your little one come up with any words? 2. Leave the letter L out for more fun later!

Such a great idea! I think I’ll try this this weekend.

Good idea… Along with learning the letter L, by putting the lace correctly through the holes, the kids will improve their fine motor skills and concentration too.
