Chicka, Chicka, Boom Boom- 31 Days of Activities Based on Children's Books

Our book for today is one of my favorite alphabet books for preschoolers. Children seem to love it!
Today we made dough letters.

First, we made the dough. (You could also use store bought play dough).
3 cups flour
1/2 cup salt 
1 1/2 cups water
Dump dry ingredients into a bowl.
Next, add the water.  Once you have poured in the water, it is time to knead and squeeze the mixture until you have a ball.
Aubrey didn't love this part. She doesn't love getting messy! I finished kneading it until it formed the ball.
Once the ball is formed, you can start making letters.
I taught Aubrey how to roll "logs" to make forming the letters easier. 
I found it worked great to put the book open in front of her so she could refer to the letters she wasn't quite sure how to make.
Aubrey loved making letters and I loved that she was learning and didn't even know it!
