Today’s letter activity is for the Letter E. For this activity a really fun material. EGGSHELLS!
Oh. . . I love eggshells! I got a really weird look from my Hubby when I asked where the egg shells were from his fritata. Is he really still surprised with my material selections?
Letter E Activity: Gluing Eggshells
What you need: Letter E, eggshells, glue, construction paper
Print out the letter E, cut it out and glue it to construction paper. I like the contrast of black construction paper for this one, but you can use what ever you have. Use eggshells that have been washed out, and dried (but don’t crunch them!!!)
This activity is pretty easy. I let Little M crunch…
crunch, and crunch some more.
Then we added glue to the mix. Little M covered her Letter E with glue and then she covered the glue with eggshells!
Questions (to ask your kids): “How do the eggshells feel in your hands?” “Can you find a piece of eggshell that is big?” “Can you find a piece of eggshell that is small?” “How does the eggshell feel on this side?” “How does it feel on this side?”
