Here’s the card J made one of his cousins for Valentines Day. It was actually a fun way to practice letters. We’ll probably reuse this activity some other time.
Prep: I actually precut for the Twizzlers for him and already had the message written in pencil on the cardstock for him.
He traced the letters with glue and then added the Twizzlers. After awhile he got tired of gluing, so I took over that part. To incorporate some learning, I asked him how many long/short pieces were needed for each letter prior to gluing. We also had lots of opportunities to repeat the words verticle and horizontal. He then added some math practice of his own as he decided to pattern the heart stickers and later the heart twizzler shapes.
I did help him on the spirals since it was a little too intricate for him to do alone. They’re supposed to be flowers, but J thought they looked like lollipops. Either one works!
