C loves to use the glue gun and she also loves to play with crafts sticks, she has made multiple things over the years with both, so she was very interested when I mentioned using the 2 together so she could show me how many letters she could make out of them. She was able to make A, E, F, H, I, K, L, M, T, V, X, and Z which is pretty good considering some of the letters can’t be made with straight craft sticks, I love that she was able to practice her letters, and motor skills, while having fun at the same time 🙂
Bonus all you need is craft sticks and a glue gun!
I have seen colored spaghetti all over pinterest and the internet so i decided to try it out, I am a firm believer that sensory activities teach something on their own, but I also hid some plastic letters in the spaghetti, which added even more learning and my daughter thought it was the most amazing thing ever.
To make it all you need is spaghetti, ziploc bags, oil and food coloring
Cook the spaghetti according to package directions
Put a few drops of food coloring and a little bit of oil in each ziploc bag(depending on how many colors you want to make)
Mix it up and enjoy
