I found a fun activity at kizclub.com, and tweaked it a bit for my own purposes…
Now one of M’s shelf activities for the week is this stringing and spelling activity. I am working on helping him identify his name, so I created these ornaments from cardstock and then made a mini-picture of what his name should look like once the ornaments are strung together.
I also made one that spells Mommy and one that spells Daddy. Hopefully by the end of the week we’ll have all three hanging on the wall. :)
I traced my ornament template onto several pieces of colored cardstock, cut them out, added details and letters with a black marker, then laminated them. I punched two holes at the top where the hanger would be for real ornaments, and put it all in a box with a needle and yarn. M loved doing this, and loved that it was his name and his “special letters”!
The printable I’ve created has the large ornament template as well as rows of smaller ornaments in color. You can print these and cut them where you need to, then add the letters you want with a black marker. I’ve included a page of black and white ones too if you want to color them in yourself or use different colors. There are instructions on the first page of the .pdf file.
