You will need a reverse image of a letter "P". Place the image on the table and place a piece of contact paper, sticky side up over the image. Supply the children with scraps of construction paper or tissue paper. (Pieces of a plastic lei were used for the photo of this project) Children use the scraps to create the image on the contact paper.
Place masking tape on a piece of finger painting paper to create the letter "P". Allow the child to paint the picture. After the paint had dried remove the tape.
Place glue on a piece of paper in shape of the letter "P". Have the children place cotton balls on the paper.
Cut the letter "P" from paper doilys or sandpaper. Tape these letters to the table. Have the children place a piece of thin white paper over the letters and rub a crayon over the letter.
Letter Shaped Potato Prints
Cut a large potato in half. You will need a "P" letter shaped cookie cutter that will fit on the potato half. Press the cookie cutter into the flat side of the potato. Then, using a knife, cut the potato around the outside of the cookie cutter, leaving a letter shaped potato stamp. Supply the children with the potato stamps, different colored paints, and paper. Have the children dip the potatoes in the paint and press them firmly onto the paper. If the potatoes are not cut evenly the shapes will not appear clearly.
Write upper case letter "P" on one set of index cards in different colors and lower case on another. Have the children find the matches.
Bean Bag Toss
Obtain a large piece of cardboard. A large, unfolded box works well. Cut the letter P out of the cardboard. Paint the cardboard. When dry let the children throw bean bags through the holes.
Cut out large "P" shapes from colored paper (shelf liner works REALLY well). Laminate them and cut them out. Place them on the floor and ask the children to hop from one letter to another. These may also be used at seat markers for group time.
