"Make a Word"

Wow! It's hard to believe Fall is almost here. The kids have been back in school for several weeks, the air is turning cool and the urge to bake pumpkin-y treats is undeniable. Fall is my favorite season!! What's yours?

"Make a Word" with letters is very educational. I came up with this fun idea for my 5 yr. old daughter using the star, Chip Art shapes and the peacock, ornamental letter stamps. She loves learning and I'm always looking for fun, innovative ways to keep her interested.

Note to self: Make the letter "O".
Start out with stars in various sizes.

Deboss the letters into the stars.

Paint the shapes with acrylic paint.

Once dry. Color the letters in with a fine tip, Sharpie.
Glue a small magnet to the back of each star.
Now they are ready to play "make a word".
