Combine a recylcing craft with ABC practice with this homemade foam craft idea. If your child is learning to eat solid foods and leaving mountains of baby food jars in her wake, use them for alphabet stamps. These stamps are great for decorating shirts and bags too. It sure spells out a good time!
What You Need:
- Foam alphabet letters
- Baby food jars
- Glue stick
- Sheet of paper
- Paper plate
What You Do:
- Sort through the foam letters and make sure you have one for every letter of the alphabet. Singing the ABC song is a great way to remember any that you forgot!
- Ask your child to glue the foam alphabet stickers to the bottom of the jars with a glue stick, making sure to glue them backwards so they face the correct way when stamped.
- Let the glue dry.
- Squeeze some paint onto a paper plate.
- Have your child press the alphabet stamps into the paint, and press it straight down onto their sheet of paper. He can print his name, or a whole message this way.
