Sandpaper and Yarn Letters

Here is a real simple activity we have discovered to play and practice letters. I bought a 9.5 x 11 sheet of sandpaper and dug into a stash of small yarn pieces.

My son loves the letter T ... can you tell?
So simple and loads of fun!

  1. That's a great idea! Does the sandpaper help the letters hold their shapes?

    1. Yes, make sure you get at least the medium coarseness and the yarn "sticks" to it rather well!

  2. Love this post but I gotta tell ya I'm here 'cause as a mommy I so know that chocolate milk is the biz-ness. =)

    Following ya now forever and ever from the TTWFI Hop. We're riding the wave of life at and I would sooo love to have ya with us, you know, if you're into that sort of thing. =)


  3. Very cute idea! I have not seen this before, will definitely be buying some sandpaper in the near future!

  4. That is a great idea. It looks like something you can do over and over again once you have the yarn cut. The texture of the sandpaper adds a sense of fun to forming the letters.
