Tt template to print and color
One activity you might want to consider is to make a tissue paper frame for
this template. When you hold it up to the window, the light shines through
-- it looks really pretty.
- Print the template and color in the T t. Point out to the child which is
the capital T and which is the lowercase.
- Cut a piece of waxed paper, parchment paper or saran wrap the same size as
a piece of construction paper. (waxed paper is a bit easier to work with)
- Mix white glue and water about 3/4 and 1/4 in a paper plate or margarine
- Use a paint brush to spread it all over the waxed paper
- Tear pieces of tissue paper in about 1 or 2 inch squares (rough tearing is
- We used red, white and pink tissue paper for our project. Just as an
aside, while we were gluing the pieces onto the waxed paper we talked
about what happens when you mix a bit of red paint with some white paint
-- it makes pink.
- Place the tissue paper over the waxed paper, overlapping slightly to cover
the entire sheet. Paint on a bit more of the glue as necessary. It should
look a bit like a stained glass window.
- While it's drying... Take a piece of construction paper (we used black)
and cut the middle out of it to make a frame shape.
- Glue or tape the frame overtop of the tissue paper 'window'.
- Remember to color in your letters. Throughout the alphabet lessons, use a
variety of mediums for coloring the letters (crayons, pencil crayons, markers,
pens, pastels water color paints, tempra paints, finger paints, etc)
- Cut out the letters and glue onto the tissue paper window.
- Whenever I do these projects with Kaitlyn, I get to draw pictures of words
that start with the letter and then she gets to color them. Don't stress
about your drawing skills... the kids will love watching you draw! Letter T
words I drew (on a separate piece of paper) were the number two, a toddler, a
tornado, a tomato, a truck and a tiger
