Stringing letters is officially the coolest way to learn the ABCs
Learning the alphabet isn't always as easy as A, B, C, but making it fun definitely helps. This adorable stringing letters craft does just that.
From the book 100 Fun & Easy Learning Games for Kids: Teach Reading, Wrting, Math and More With Fun Activities by authors Amanda Boyarshinov and Kim Vij, who are both educators and moms, it's a great craft to do with kids this summer to keep the learning going.
Following the simple directions, children create fun, hands-on letters using glue and string to help them memorize the shapes. Once ready, they make the perfect material to hang in alphabetical order for even more letter practice. For kids who already know their letters, it can be a great way to practice spelling or just make a fun sign for their room.
The entire book is filled with games that help children thrive in school, while they just think they're having fun.
