We practiced writing P using a salt tray. It is just mainly salt and a baking pan from the dollar store. You can use a chopstick , a pencil , or just their fingertip. And with this , I also used the Sandpaper Letter as her guide.


For our craft , we did a Pig toilet paper roll craft. get the template and the how to here:



and we enjoyed watching Three Little Pigs ( paid subscription with Netflix) , which afterwards they both did  a pretend play. Our silly girls made me laugh when they would say "Little pig ..little pig..let me in " ..with their trying to be a big bad wolf voice but they have such a tiny sweet voice.
