HOW TO MAKE JIGGLY SLIME FOR LETTERS AND NUMBERS

There are actually quite a few ways you can use this alphabet jiggly slime! Plus you can use any small plastic letters or numbers! Some of the activities for this alphabet slime include letter recognition, building sight words, exploring word families, and of course using fine motor skills too.

If you stick with the scrabble tiles {check second hand stores for a set}, you can also work on number recognition and writing out math sentences. You can also switch the theme up with just using small plastic numbers to work solely on math skills.
