ALPHABET SOUP


If you’re looking for an easy, peasy back to school craft – look no further! This alphabet soup will meet all of your “let’s get into school mode” needs, while embracing the “let’s still have fun!” demands from your kiddo



WHAT YOU NEED:

  4. Using white glue, give your soup some added pizazz with gold star confetti!

ACTIVITY EXTENSIONS:

  • Pair this activity with alphabet soup for lunch or dinner!

CONNECTION STARTERS:

  • How did you choose which paint colours to use?

  • What type of lines or markings can you make with the oil pastels?

  • Are our letter stickers upper or lower case?
