Paper Bag Letter Blocks

Paper Bag Letter Blocks
It is easy to make paper bag letter blocks. Take a paper lunch bag and stuff it about 1/2 full with newspaper. Fold over the top and tape. We had letters on one side and numbers on the other side.

These were easy to make and fun for the day, BUT I must confess that they got recycled at the end of the night. They weren’t great for stacking and ended up being thrown around a lot. However, I think they are neat for working with or learning letters. (Example: Can you find the block that has a C on it? or “Let’s put them in order from A to Z!”)

Also, check out these ABC blocks from Kids Club. Just print, cut, and fold. They have a letter and a picture on each block.

They have great potential to be used in "bean bag" type games too!
