Tuesday Teachings - The Letter N

Well, we are quickly makin git through our alphabet crafts and this week we move on to letter N.

Letter N Feel free to download our letter N wot owrk with.

Some words that start with N: Night, Nest, Need, Nap, Nose, Nickel, Noel, Note and Nanny

For our crafts we focused on Numbers and Noodles.

For our first craft, I wrote out the number 1-20 on small pieces of construction paper and then my son glued them onto the letter N. As he glued each one, we repeated the number by saying Number 1, Number 2, etc.

For our next craft, be prepared for a bit of a mess but a lot of fun! I cooked noodles until al dente then stuck them in the refrigerator to cool. Once they were cool, we poured out paint in to a paper plate and used the noodles as a paintbrush. It was fun and going well until he discovered that he could slam them down hard and paint would splatter! Nonetheless, this was fun for both of us!

Foods that start with the letter N: Nestle, Noodles, Nectatines, Nuts & Nachos.

We made Butterscotch Nests (they are not just for Easter anymore).

To make the nests, melt a bag of butterscotch chips and 1/2 cup peanut butter in microwave. Once melted, add a can of chow mein noodles and mix well trying not to break all of the noodles. Scoop out the noodles on to wax paper and used your hands to form nest shapes. We then used M & M's as our bird eggs since I did not have jellybeans, which is the typical egg on these.
