Handwriting Helper

{This Little Project} has been a fun game to help us practice good hand writing.  
It turned out pretty cute considering {This Little Project} out of our invention/junk box!

To make {This Little Project} you need:

an egg carton that holds 2 dozen eggs

stickers of the alphabet

a pom pom

To assemble: put an alphabet sticker inside each egg spot.  
You'll be short 2 spots so we put the last two at the top.


To Play the Handwriting Helper Game:
Have the child toss the pom pom into the carton.  
The child writes the letter the pom pom lands on.
You can have them write the uppercase or lowercase letter, or both!
You could also have the child say the sound that goes with the letter.


Game Variation for Older Children:
Instead of writing just the letter, have the child think of a word that starts with that letter.  

This can turn into a spelling game too!


Have fun writing and playing!
