Alphabet Drawing Board
|Make a drawing board with your child for him or her to learn and practice the alphabet.|
- Keep the craft knife out of young children's reach.
- Watch out for this sign . It means adult help is needed for the particular step.
|1.||First thing you need to do is to laminate an A4 or Letter size paper. There are 3 ways to do this:
1.) Sandwich the paper in between 2 contact paper sheets.
2.) Go to a copy center and have them laminate the paper using a hot laminator.
3.) Glue the edges of the paper onto a sheet of acetate film. If you do this third option like I did, your drawing board will be slightly wrinkled at the edges.
|2.||Use the laminated paper as a guide to cut Styrofoam board or thick paperboard. The board should be wider than the laminated paper by at least 1 ½ inches on all four sides.|
|3.||Glue the laminated paper at the center of the board.|
|4.||You can make your alphabet letters or print out any of these alphabet template sets:|
|5.||Color the letters if you chose a black & white template.|
|6.||Cut around each letter.|
|7.||Glue the letters around the drawing board.|
|8.||Once the glue has dried, you can start drawing on your board!
Practice writing the alphabet letters and draw objects that start with those letters.
|9.||Use a whiteboard eraser or a piece of tissue to erase and start again.|
|10.||You can also use the drawing board to draw anything you like. Exercise your imagination and have fun drawing!|
