Teach your Child Letters and Numbers using Magic Fairy Dust!

If you have a young child that is trying to learn their letters or numbers I have a GREAT activity you can do with them. I call this the Fairy Dust Writing Activity!

I love this activity because it can also be modified to teach other levels from learning to write to practicing spelling words with older children!  I did this with my kids when they were just learning to write and now we use it as a different way to practice spelling!

Fairy Dust Writing Activity


To do this activity it is very simple you just need the following items:

Sprinkle a small amount of baby powder on the tray and shake it around a little to make sure its spread out.  To practice writing just write the letters with your finger!  When you are ready to go on to another letter just simply wipe the baby powder around and start over.  You can use a small amount of baby powder for a long time!
