Pipe cleaner letters

Pipe cleaner craft
Today we did some crafts, we created the alphabet out of pipe cleaners.
This helps aid handwriting & letter recognition.
Having letters that stand out and can be touched, allows creative little minds to see how the letters are formed. A lot of times children retain information by touch, there has been research into how touch can produce, detailed lasting memories.
The pipe cleaners are able to be cut & bent into shape. Which helps with letter edges such as W and K. Doing this craft allows children to see where the joins of a letter meet.
So next time they come to write the letter, they can remember the feel of that exact letter.
All we used is
• Coloured card £1
• Coloured pip cleaners £1
• Glue gun, but pva or double sided tape could be used.
