There has been a small amount of interest in these, and I have decided to post my templates for anyone who might want to do this too. Click on this image:
A couple of things you should know…
- The first two pages of the file have the shape templates that you will need to cut out and trace onto craft foam. The rest of the pages show how to put them together for each letter.
- I’ve made notes on the file telling how many of each shape you will need to cut from foam in order to build any letter. However, if you want enough foam shapes to put all of the letters together at the same time, you will have to cut several more. We do one letter at a time, then pick another letter and re-use the shapes we need. (Sure hope that makes sense!)
- Because the template pieces will need to overlap a little to make many of the letters, some of the lines are not showing up on the file. For example the B: I could not figure out a way to get them all to show, so part of the lines are missing. It was the middle of the night when I created this and I finally gave up trying! I suggest you go over your sheets with a marker and fill in the missing parts so your child will have an easier time *seeing* how to build the letters. This was only a problem because there was extra space around the templates in the file. Obviously, it won’t be a problem when you are using the actual foam pieces.
Only uppercase letters are included in this, but I hope to make a set for lowercase letters sometime soon!
Have a beautiful day! :)
