Kids love to imitate adults, I will be the first to admit my son has said a “bad” word or two ( or three) and that always serves s a reminder that we need to watch what we do because they are. It also serves as a great opportunity to play, pretend and create. When I saw these letter stickers I knew I had to do something with them, this is what evolved.
- Gather your materials. You will need a cereal box, some letter stickers, markers, glue , scissors and a piece of white foam or paper.
- Start by cutting your cereal box so that it’s two main panels and one side panel only.
- Have your child color their lap top how they please. My son was all into gray when we made this and I admit to coaxing him into using some purple so you all could see he did some coloring.
- Next start adding the “keyboard” We had fun doing this, even though my son’s 2 year old fingers couldn’t get the tricky stickers off we sat down next to each other, he pointed to a letter or number, identified it and I peeled it off for him. Then he decided where it should go. With older kids you could make a space bar, and enter key etc… I kept it simple so my son could do it as independently as possible.
- Next hand your child the foam sheet or paper and have them color it. I couldn’t resist writing No Time For Flash Cards on ours.
- Glue it on.
- Let dry.
