Body Letters (ages 4-10)

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. There are several ways to form body letters, so let the children experiment and use the way that works best for them.
  4. Just For Fun: Take pictures of the body letters and share them with family or friends or mail them to Grandma!
