This activity is a fun way practice identifying letters. It is also a great way to learn about letter names and sounds!

Use our Instant Blackboard to cut your letters to size and then stick them on the floor, wall or even a table. The best part is that our Instant Blackboard is removable and re-usable so you can move the game to different spaces and rooms! 

You will need:

  • Made by Me Instant Blackboard (comes with chalk)
  • Micador A4 Drawing paper
  • Micador Stay Anywhere Pen
  • Ruler
  • Early stART Safety Scissors

 Tips:

  1. Try making numbers to practise number recognition or simple addition and subtraction.
  2. Keep the blackboard offcuts and use them as labels for school folders, kitchen containers or toy room boxes.

 

Step

Step 1: Create your template and trace

Using your stay anywhere pen and ruler, draw your letter template onto a piece of A4 drawing paper. Lay a piece of instant blackboard down on your workbench. Trace around your letter template with white chalk.

Step 2: Make your mark

Use your white chalk to decorate your letters with dashed lines so that they look like road markings.

Step 4: Get racing!

Construct the letters of your name and play with your blackboard racetrack. Try calling out as many words as you can think of that begin with the letter you’re racing on (think animals, colours, vegetables etc).
