• Paper
  • Marker
  • Bag of colorful pompoms
  • Glue (optional)


Write your letter of focus on the paper. Make it big! I like to do bubble letters.

Encourage your child to line up pompoms on the guide to make the letter. If desired, helped them glue the pompoms in place.


You can add layers of complexity to this activity by selecting a single color, alternating colors in a pattern, or spelling out the child’s name.
