Dropper Writing Letter M with LEGO โ€ข ๐Ÿ” Language 101 ๐ŸŽฅ Series ๐ŸŽ‡

Today, we are practicing fine-motor skills while spelling using a dropper the letter "M" on a LEGO DUPLO board. This activity also has a sensorial dimension as Adrian has to follow precisely the color-scheme and the pattern that his sister drew for him as a template for the letter M.

 What you will need:

  • LEGO DUPLO board,
  • crayons and matching food coloring,
  • liquid droppers to practice fine-motor skills (buy a set of six here) – I like that you can take the silicone bulb off to dry the dropper so it does not collect mold,
  • white paper.

Following Julia's template, Adrian has to "write" letter M on a LEGO board using colored water and a dropper.
