Alphabet Snake!

I have seen some great ideas from others doing the Letter of the Week, caterpillars, trees, etc., and I wanted to do something similar, but that would be more boy friendly.

So, I decided to do an Alphabet Snake! HEE HEE

I wanted to share it with you in case it would be something that your boys would like too!

                                    See, it is a "diamond back" snake! Get it?  HA HA HA!!!

What I did was take several pieces of poster board, and I drew a snake on the darker brown piece.

I used a cookie cutter to trace out the diamonds, and I used a lighter color for these.

I took the lighter and darker browns/golds, and made the desert and rocks.

Of course, I used green for the cacti and lizards! And blue for the sky!

I bought stickers from Hobby Lobby that had gold colored Upper and Lowercase letters.

As he learns each new letter every week, he will put the pair on the next diamond!

I really wanted to make this into something that he was interested in, and I think we succeeded!!!

Let me know if you like this idea.

Another idea I had for girls, would be to use butterflies and post one letter on each wing, one uppercase and the other the lowercase!!!

Have fun creating your own Alphabet................whatever.........
