The children are trying really hard to write their names.
This is an alternative activity to using a pencil…
The letters are just written on opaque nuggets with a permanent marker. I have put a little varnish over the top as I found that the pen wore off after lots of little fingers had played with them. Name cards were provided for the children too , but some don’t need them now.
Instead of their names, some children chose to just place the letter nuggets into the sand.
I have a very bright little girl who made a number of cvc words & also attempted to write ‘submarine’!
One child just enjoyed making patterns with the nuggets… he made sure the sand was nice & smooth when he had finished 😉
Thank you for looking!
