Constructing Letters


We always say that a toy should be 10% toy and 90% child.  This product is exactly that.  

These were a huge hit with our children!  We love that they are multifaceted - oh yes, multifaceted.  You can use these to reinforce so many skills - color recognition, sorting, sizes, shapes, matching, problem solving, fine motor, letter recognition (obviously), and imagination.  The pieces were very easy for our children (3 years) to snap together - and they look FANTASTIC on the light panel.

Constructing letter X


Constructing letter F


Shape Recognition


Big... Bigger... Biggest

Sorting by shape and color (24 Months and 3 years)




They can also be...



 


A steering wheel











A "roller coaster"

Train tracks



Snowman

Although not intended for constructing numbers you can pretty much make 0-9 with the pieces that are given to you.  



Addition, subtraction, division, fraction, equal signs, etc. can also be easily made for some math time fun!  


There are enough pieces in the box to make several smaller words as well as bigger words.


The Letter Construction Activity Set can be purchased at the following:

  15. Thanks for this chance for anyone worldwide (it is not very common to be able to enter a giveaway if you're not from the States). I have liked you both on FB. I have recently built a light table out of a children's desk and I'm sure my daughter will love this material.
    Thanks again.

  16. These would be great for my oldest son! He's in Kindergarten and has a terrible time writing with reversals, "interesting" letter formation, and incredible frustration with schoolwork. These would help his letter formation tremendously and give him a different means of doing written work. What a great find!

  23. I just bought these based on this post and my daughter (who is 4 and shows only the smallest interest in letters) spent 45 minutes playing with them and building letters very proudly. Thank you for the post and recommendation!!
