Today we are going to how to play a fun Montessori game that promotes good hand writing skills while also helping kids to learn the alphabet on their own. This is an educational, yet fun arts and craft activity for both you and your young children to do together. This crafts idea is beneficial for preschoolers, Kindergartners, as well as children who are autistic / on the spectrum / or those who have sensory disorders. (even older children enjoy it). I have a friend with an Autistic child and this game is very similar to the way she had to teach her child the alphabet since he wasn’t able to learn the alphabet through sight since he was more into sensory and tactile learning techniques. As a warning, this craft might cause random bursts of laughter from both you and your child. Comment to tell us how your child reacts to this fun tactile game and craft. Enjoy.
