Autumn Alphabet using the Sun #educational

by Samantha from LittleHandsBigWork.com
for ages  2 and up with Adult Participation

Supplies
Start by arranging your letters and leaves on brown paper(or any fall color!) Caden did the whole alphabet on one regular size paper…
005
And then wanted to make his name with big letters and use the big leaves!
002
Next, take them outside and put them in direct sunlight for a few hours(2 for us but we live in Arizona!)
007
When you bring them in they should look like this! The longer you leave them out in the sun the more contrast you will get!
008
My 4 year old was given the job of putting felt fall leaves from the target dollar spot on the alphabet poster.
011
While Caden set to work coloring his name poster with the triangular crayons! Seriously, I love these crayons! They encourage proper grip, don’t roll away, no messy papers to get peeled of, and they come in bright colors and an awesome case!
013
He was proud of his work and went on to color it more!
022
Our alphabet found it’s place on our fridge where all of the kids started to match the letters up!
015
Extension activity: Use the Melissa and Doug Alphabet Sound Puzzle to match lower case and uppercase letters! This was great practice for my 4 year old!
