I am by no stretch of the imagination handy with a tool kit! But I am creative, crafty and can build an Ikea cabinet. However my free Printable ABC Tool Colouring Alphabet Letters are designed with those little ones in mind who love a tool kit.
One of our boys used to carry his tool kit everywhere when he was little, just in case something needed fixing ha ha. I blame Handy Manny for that. But you know what if you can find a way to link literacy to hobbies and passions, it’s so much easier than making it a chore and something to avoid.
When our boys were little, they would have loved nothing more than spelling and word games that matched their favourite subjects. And kids are wonderful and diverse; we should celebrate that rather than try to pigeonhole them.
