Making Letters With Clay

Use clay to help your child develop her fine-motor skills, and learn how letters are formed, in one activity. Using a magic marker, write a large letter on a piece of paper. Help your child roll a piece of clay into a long snake shape, and show her how to create a letter to match what you wrote on the paper. You can do her name, a word, or the whole alphabet if you’re feeling ambitious.
