The dinosaurs were definitely stomping around on some grass back in the Jurassic era. So today as we teach our Lil’ Explorers about the letter G, we will do so by teaching them that G is for Grass.
This letter of the week activity will engage your Lil’ in literacy and sensory fun as they play with our crinkle basket grass.

Glue the G to the white paper.
Step #3
Apply glue to the entire G.
Step #4
Cover up all the glue with green crinkly basket filler. That will serve as our grass.

Teacher Tip

You may need to play with the “grass” a little after you have glued it down so that it sticks to the glue and makes the G shape. That way you do not have too many straggler pieces ruining your G shape.
