My daughter is 10 and had such a great time looking online for activities (she's already come up with ideas for next week). My original plan was to use activities from when I was teaching, but I could tell she really wanted to do the planning!!! What a great learning experience for her as well.
Keep in mind my son is 2, so we kept it simple, and our only expectation was that he would be introduced to the letter and have fun at the same time!!!
Activity 1: Play dough "LETTERS"
(we all played with play dough and cut out various letter shapes)
Activity2: Little Lamb
(we traced my sons hand onto black paper, cut it out, and then let him cover the palm
with white cotton balls, my daughter drew hooves and a face on the fingers)
Sing Mary Had A Little Lamb
Activity 3: Leo The Lion
( Of course we sang Leo The Lion. We then found a small pater plate, used a glue
stick to cover the outside edge with glue. My son then helped to place the paper
strips around for the main, and glued on the eyes and nose.)
Activity 4: Lips starts with L
( I drew an L Shape onto a piece of paper, put lipstick on my son and let him kiss the paper leaving his "lip print".)
Activity 5: Lamb, Leaf, and L cookies
Rolled Sugar Cookies
(from The Southern Living Cookbook)
3 C flour
2 t baking powder
3/4 t baking soda
1 C shortening (I used butter(
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 C sugar
2 T milk
1 t vanilla
Combine flour, baking powder, and soda, cut in shortening (or butter) with a pastry blender until it resembles course meal. Combine egg, sugar, milk, and vanilla. Stir until well blended pour into the the dry mixture. Stir with fork until well blended. pat dough into ball and chill 2 hours (we usually can't wait that long). Role dough 1/8 in thick and cut with cookie cutter.
Bake at 375 for 6 minutes.
Fancy That, a week of fun Letter L activities!!!
