Ss template to print and color
One activity you might want to consider is to make a string painting frame
for this template.
- Print the template and color in the S s. Point out to the child which is
the capital S and which is the lowercase.
- Take a long piece of string and dip it in some tempra or poster paint.
Keep the end you'll be holding onto out of the paint so your fingers stay

- They can dip a fresh string in a separate color and continue their
