Learning through fun.

I have two kids learning about letters right now.  My preschoolers is learning what they look like and how to write them.  My 1st grader is learning the sounds of letters and sometimes needs a break for the books and worksheets. 
So, we found some shaving cream and started having some fun!
I just spread some of the shaving cream  ( the cheapest you can find) onto a cookie sheet and let them first just mess around because that is what they are going to want to do anyway, you may as well let them have at it.
After a few minutes show them how to write a particular letter or number with their finger.  You could put up cards with letter on them for the kids to copy as well.
Be ready for some clean up but remember it is basically soap and cleans up easy.
Have fun!!
