      for aleks! #Daily5 #WordWork This is an excellent DIY project (that is inexpensive!) that provides a tactile experience of making words -- and might get a few more of your boys excited about making words!

      What a great idea! Kids could spell their names or sight words. Work on spelling and fine motor at the same time.

      {{what a great idea!!}} "I wanted to make my kids some fun spellers that they could build their word vocabulary with and went through many ideas. I wanted a more industrial chic look that could be modern and fun. I started at the hardware store with a rough idea of what I wanted in my head. I rummaged through my craft supplies for rub on letters from Michaels .99 and my Mod Podge. I added these supplies to what I picked up from the hardware store (5 hex nuts, 1 carriage bolt and 1 lock nut). Make sure that your hex nuts are larger than your bolt so that they slide as opposed to screw up and down the bolt. This makes them easier to turn, the more nuts you add on. I added the letters onto each side of the nuts and then put the mod podge on top of them to adhere them to the nut. Since my kids are at different vocabulary levels, I knew I needed to make it a game that they all could play! This was perfect! They could easily play the game with 2,3,4 and 5 letters (Just add or take away the nuts as needed) and when they think they've spelled them all, take them all out and mix around the order!! For my youngest, I go down to 3 letters at times when he is learning new words and sometimes we just use 1 letter and I have him find the letters that I ask for, that way he gets a better understanding of letters. This is a game that we have all gotten into and tucks away easily into a busy bag or even my purse!! I've made about 12 different nuts of letters and we have 5 bolts so that there can be multiple games going on at once and the letters can be switched up often."
