Making our own mosaic letters

We have been doing a number of letter activities for our little man lately, he has been loving them and keeps asking me for more.  This time I thought we would combine our letters with some crafts and make our own mosaic letters.

I downloaded the paper saving blank display lettering from Twinkl (part of their gold package but you could also make your own letters), printed them on card and cut the letters out.

I included some red beans, kidney beans, corn, pasta, buttons, art gems, shredded paper some small art sticks and some coloured rice.  All of the items where either from my kitchen cupboard or from the kids art trolley.  We just used our normal PVA art glue.
