Here are the activities we did for the letter T:
The first letter T activity that we did was make a name train.
This activity was great because all we needed was construction paper, a writing utensil, glue and scissors. The original plan was to make a train and then glue it to a piece of paper. I decided against this. Having it not glued to a piece of paper allowed us to be able to play with it and then put it away in a ziploc bag to be played with later. This was a great way to help my son start learning the order of the letters in his name.
The next letter T activity we did was make a number tower.
Another super simple and easy activity that does not only help with teaching about the letter T. This activity also helped with teaching numbers. Literally all we needed for this activity were Styrofoam cups and a marker. I then labeled each cup with a number from 1-10, laid them out and then had my son stack them in the correct order. This is also a great activity for storing and having an educational and fun thing to do for later.
Our next letter T activity was tic-tac-toe toss.
This is actually an activity that we have done before, more detail of how it is set up can be seen here. This is better for preschool aged children who are a little older, those who are better able to understand how to play tic-tac-toe. If they are not old enough to understand this game than just tossing the bags of rice, bean bags or whatever you are tossing at a target, is a fun option as well.
The last letter T activity we did was paint a tooth with a toothbrush.
For this activity I had my daughter draw a big tooth on a piece of paper using a black marker. Then after she chose a few paint colors she then painted the tooth by using a toothbrush as the paintbrush. Both of my kids thought this activity was a lot of fun. They thought it was crazy to be painting with such an odd tool!
Which of these activities would be your child’s favorite? Can you think of any other fun letter T activities?
