Summer themed letters

  • Print, and cut out the printable pieces (below).
  • Laminate each of the pails for durability and to ensure that they’re not easily ripped while your child is using them.
  • Grab some wooden craft sticks (you’ll need 26 if you plan to work on all of the letters at once) and either glue or tape the shovel handles onto one end of the wooden sticks.
  • After you have all of the pails cut out, use a small hobby blade or X-Acto knife to cut a small slit in the top, sandy section of each pail.
