ABC pointers

Last summer, I bought this bag of foam letters at a garage sale.  They are not stickers, just foam letters.  We have used them for a variety of things, such as a letter sensory bin, to spell words, and to make Little Guy's name, but this weekend I came up with a new idea.  I made ABC pointers!
All I needed was one of each letter (I only have capital letters), 26 popsicle sticks, and a hot glue gun.  I sorted through the bag and decided to make all the consonants blue and the vowels red, for future ideas.  I simply glued the letters on the popsicle sticks, pulled off all the annoying little strings, and here they are!

 We already started to use the letter T pointer this week in Tot School.  Little Guy is using it to point to the days of the week on his calendar as we sing.  Another simple way to reinforce the letter we are practicing!
What have you done with foam letters?


  1. I love this idea! I love when I'm hit with a genius idea! :)

    1. I'm glad you like this idea, too! So simple yet practical!

  2. Love this! We have some foam letters but haven't done much with them- we just painted with them.
