The directions and materials for this project are very simple.

Here’s what you need:

  • construction paper
  • a marker or pencil
  • cotton balls
  • glue

Here’s what you do:

Have the kids trace the letter with a glue stick and then add the the cotton balls along the line of the letter. Or they can add glue as they add cotton balls. Either way is fine.

  1. What a great project! We are working on Arabic numbers with my almost 4 year old, and she’s pretty bored with the worksheets she has. I should try something like this!

  2. This is great! I’m realizing how important these activities are to learning to write properly. The brain needs to take it all in first. My kids would love this, pinning for late 🙂
