This week we are working on the letter H in our letter a week lessons. We started with H is for Hot! I decided it would be fun to do a little craft to go with it. C did not want to be in the pic. Can you tell?
Fill one bowl with Ice water and one bowl with HOT water. Be careful not to get it too hot though. Think hot for little hands. =)
Let your little one dip their hands in and feel each one. If you child is like C, you will wish you didn’t do this on the table because of the splashing.
H is for Hopscotch. Let me start by saying playing hopscotch with a 4 year old is quite the experience. He had me giggling quite a bit. He thought he should rethrow the stick before every jump. It was fun for him to hop a lot. Honestly, I think I could have made it H is for hop and he would have been just as happy.
Chalk is also a great way to get your child to practice lettering. I wrote the letter H for C and he practiced his as well.
H is for Hands
For hands we made a lovely handprint Fall Tree.
Use whatever paper you have on hand. I have a roll of this paper so I just cut a piece off.
Draw your child a tree trunk. If you think your child can make their own please let them. I know C would go everywhere except a tree trunk.
Doing handprints is a lot easier if you paint a little bit of paint on their hands and then do it instead of letting them put their hands in the paint.
Use a variety of fall colors and let your child fill up the tree. If you have a spot drop, tell them to turn it into a leaf. They won’t know the difference.
Let them make fingerprint grass. It’s so fun!
We made a golden sun and C decided it had to be a Happy sun because H is for Happy.
What are you doing this week to learn the letter H?
