P is for Popsicle

P is for Popsicle!  Working on letters can be a challenge with my 5 year old.  Slowly but surely we are making progress, I just need to change up how we tackle learning the basics.  His attention span is hard to keep so I’ve been coming up with fun activities to keep learning fun!  Like most new 5 year olds, he is a hands on learner so by tackling letter practice and reinforcing them with objects and sounds has been the best combination.

Cut paint chip sample into pieces.  We only needed one of each color.

Let your child glue the popsicle with the paint chip sample pieces in any design!
