Not sure how to teach the necessary letter N? You’ve come to the right place.
For kids who are preschool aged and who are starting to learn the alphabet, it’s fun to find different activities to help them learn the letters. That way, there’s something to remember the letters by! It’s always fun to start teaching your kids new things, and with different activities, not only will you be able to keep them busy but you’ll also be able to make some memories with them.
While there are tons of different words starting with the letter “N,” there’s nothing more magical than the starry night sky.
That’s why we thought it would be fun to teach the letter “N” by creating a beautiful glow in the dark night sky for your child’s bedroom ceiling. Let’s get started.
Here’s what you’ll need.
To get set up to make these glow in the dark stars, you won’t need many materials. You’ll definitely need to supervise your preschooler while you use some spray paint that’s involved, but otherwise, this is a no muss no fuss type of craft!
These are the materials you’ll need to create your night sky:
- Old cereal boxes
- White paint
- Glue dots or command strips
- Glow in the dark spray paint (you don’t have to use spray paint if you’d like to use a paint you can brush on instead)
The first step is to outline your constellations and stars on the cereal box. You can use the stencils below for your stars!
Your next step is to paint the stars, moons, and other planets of your night sky white. Let them dry completely before moving on to the next step. Step three is to use your glow in the dark paint and coat the night sky stars, moons, and planets with several thin coats of the paint.
Charge your night sky by leaving it out in the light for 15-20 minutes where the light or the sun can charge the glow in the dark paint. Then you’ll be ready to stick your stars on the ceiling and create a beautiful night sky!
You need the letter “N”, so here are (n)ine other words that start with “N”:
