Last week we did Marble Painting for the letter M activity. I used a new technique for painting with marbles, and even though it was fun. . . I missed our old way a little bit. So for the Letter N activity we are going back to basics and keeping it super simple.
Find all of the letter of the week art activities here.
Letter N Activity: Gluing Noodles
what you need: Letter N, scissors, glue, paper and assorted noodles.
Prep the letter before you start. Print it out, cut it and glue it to a piece of construction paper.
If you have a wide selection of noodles in you pantry, take 10-15 out of each for this. Our local grocery store has a bulk section that made it very easy for me to buy a small amount of several different noodles.
Questions (to ask your kids): “What are you finding to be the best way to get the noodles to stick?” “Is that the same answer for all the different types of noodles?” “Can you describe the texture of the each noodle?” “How are these noodles similar? How are they different?”
