Time to practice the alphabet? Teach your child how to fashion the letters of his name with brightly colored chenille stems.
Make It: Write the letters of your child's name on a piece of paper. Show him how to form chenille stems into the shapes of the letters. Glue the letters onto a sign made from cardstock or foam that has holes punched at the top on each side.
Next, fold a white chenille stem in half to create a hanger. Cut assorted multicolor stems into 6-inch lengths and help your child wrap the pieces tightly around a pencil to form fuzzy "beads." Let him thread the beads onto the white stem, and help him twist each end of the hanger into the holes to complete the sign.
