Tired of hearing how bored your children are in the summer? If so, have them make body letters with another family member or friend.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Here’s what you do:
- If your children are working on learning the names and shapes of the letters, ask them to form all the letters in the alphabet using their body with a friend, sibling, or family member.
- To form the letters, lie down on the floor (preferably a carpeted area) and bend into the shape of a letter.For example, for the letter A, two children could lie down at angles with their heads touching to form the upside-down “V”. To form the middle part of the A, the children could each reach out with one arm.
- There are several ways to form body letters, so let the children experiment and use the way that works best for them.
- Just For Fun: Take pictures of the body letters and share them with family or friends or mail them to Grandma!
