1) Sharpen a pencil with the Westcott Panda Pencil Sharpener and use it to trace the Westcott Letter Craft Oil Board Stencil Lettering onto a piece of black construction paper.
2) Cut the letter out with the Westcott 5” Pointed Kids Titanium Bonded Scissors.
3) Paste the letter onto another brightly colored piece of construction paper. Then use the Westcott 12” Jewel Colored Ruler to draw pencil guidelines for your text. Lastly, write your text on the pencil guidelines. Once everyone has created their signs, take turns to present your power letter to the class and describe it’s meaning.
Adult supervision is recommended when children use scissors.
