Learning Letters: Science & Sensory

Shaving Cream Letters added 2-24-01 Original Author Unknown

A great tool for children learning how to write their name or practice writing the alphabet is shaving cream.  No one can resist the squishing of the cream and the smell is good too. Put a small amount of shaving cream on a Formica top table (I do not recommend wood.) Let the children spread it around. Then use there finger to write there letters. Practice doing shapes too. 

Letter Formation added 10-4-04 Submitted By: Sioned Evans

Practice forming letters correctly in sawdust, shaving foam or even chocolate sauce! The children love the sensory aspect of the activity as well as learning to form letters correctly.
