Toddler and Preschooler Activities for the Letter J

This past week we studied the letter "J." In celebration of this fine letter of the alphabet, we made "Jumbo Me's." Do you remember doing these when you were younger? It's a fun way for your kids to see how big they really are...on paper!

Butcher paper
markers or crayons
googly eyes

Trace your kid's entire body with a crayon (marker bleeds onto their clothes).
Help your toddler or preschooler decorate their Jumbo Me. We used googly eyes and drew on the nose and mouth. Then we cut out pieces of yarn for hair (I only had blond, so they were both blonds), and drew clothes.
My two year old wiggled way too much so her Jumbo Me was a little off.

My three year old cut ended up cutting out a skirt for her Jumbo Me with some fabric. She drew rings on her fingers and painted her nails.


p.s. This is a great activity that can keep them busy on their own and give you some free time!
