This is a fast little winter craft that helps to develop name recognition, writing, and even hand strength! Yes, using glue bottles for writing is a fun way to work on writing without a pencil and squeezing that bottle is great for little hands. Older children can work on cursive too!
I found these little styrofoam balls at the dollar store but have seen them at Walmart, Micheal’s and other crafts stores too. This week is a great time to buy them because they are usually on sale!
Gather your materials. You will need some card stock in any colors, some snowflake or other stickers, white glue, glitter glue, and small styrofoam balls. You will also want a small dish and cookie sheet or tray with edges, too.
Start by writing your name with glue. You can do this many ways depending on the ability of the students or your child. You can write the letters on the cardstock first and have your child trace the letters with glue or go free hand.
Older kids can try cursive.
Place the paper with the glue name in the tray and then dump the styrofoam on.
Pour off the extra.
Next, add glitter glue and stickers.
Finally, let dry!
