I cut out letter-frames of construction paper to spell out the word "welcome" and placed them right-side down on a sheet of clear contact paper. Then I invited the girls over to decorate the letters with all that fun confetti!
For Clara, this was a great exercise in letter-recognition and fine motor skills. She was so proud of her letters!
Emily thought the bright colors would make the plants feel as though our garden was one big fiesta!!
I added another sheet of clear contact paper sticky side down to sandwich the letters in-between. She used binder clips to attach the letters in the right order to a length of laundry line -- great spelling practice and the binder clips helped challenge her pincher grasp too.
...and now our garden is starting to look a whole lot more colorful!
