This school year, Izzie will be focusing on writing letters and numbers. I've been wanting to purchase sandpaper letters/numbers for her, but decided to try to make them instead. They were super cheap and easy to make!
I bought one pink and one blue thick foam boards at Michael's (on sale 2 for $5). I decided to go with the Montessori colors (pink for vowels and blue for constants). The most difficult part was cutting the thick boards with a utility knife. Using Microsoft Word, I printed out lower-case letters in my desired font and size. Then, I traced the letters backward on sandpaper (huge pack at the Dollar Tree). Finally, after cutting out the sandpaper letters, I simply glued them on the thick board. DONE!! I'm so excited with the way they turned out and I'll be making capital letters and numbers, soon!
