Using play-dough to learn to spell names
I wanted to share this with you today as it combines all the things that Little Boo likes at the moment: play dough, stamps and her name. We have used stamps (Melissa and Doug Alphabet stamps) to make an impression of the letters for her name. Then we used the play dough to make the letters out of the spaghetti that Little Boo made using one of her play dough toys.
Another way to learn the letters is to write into the play dough with a pen something that Little Boo did yesterday with the microwave salt dough.
