Making Letter and Number Crayons
We first made these letter crayons last February. Prior to making these crayons Max was pretty much uninterested in letters. After we made them I used them to teach Maxton his uppercase letters and numbers. He loved matching them on playmats I made for him. He learned to recognize and name all of his letters and the numbers 0-9 in about 2 weeks at age 2!
Since then we have made many more sets of these for gifts and of course to replace broken ones from our set. We have extended this activity by spelling our names and other high frequency words. This is an activity he chooses to play with over and over.
