In my bid to generate ideas for younger GEM to learn how to spell her name previously, I headed to Pinterest for some inspirations. I came across the following website and followed the idea of using pegs. Having each letter of her name on a peg and matched it to a card with her name. I used popsicle sticks instead as it appears more aesthetically pleasing.
This was such an engaging activity for her; to match the letters and use her fine motor skills to attach the pegs on the right space. I was amazed that younger GEM could learn to spell her name rather quickly.
Seeing younger GEM enjoying the activity, I proceeded to using numbers and alphabets. Upper case on the popsicle stick and lower case on the pegs. She would often take these out to play during quiet time.
These are also excellent personalised gifts, hence I gifted these DIY sets to kids for their birthdays and Christmas instead of getting store bought items!
