Watermelon Alphabet Clip
Who doesn't love watermelon in the summer? I made a watermelon alphabet clip which is a great activity for letter recognition and fine motor development. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
I set the watermelon slices out along with enough clothespins for all of the cards. I made this set with upper to upper ... upper to lower ... and lower to lower so you would have a choice of what you wanted your early learners to work on.
In this activity children clip a clothespin on the matching letter on each watermelon slice. Play continues until all cards have been clipped. As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where the watermelon number clip is located.

Would you also do a set using traditional manuscript style letters?

Hi Marilynn ... I've actually been looking in to using different fonts. I believe in a print rich environment which includes a variety of fonts and will be making a decision soon as to what I will be changing to.
