toilet paper rolls
Mr. Sketch Scent Markers (by far my favorite type of markers in the whole world!)
Sharpie or fine-tipped marker
I customized a toilet roll for each of my kids. My 2 and 3-year-old Daycare Kids matched their dot stickers to the same color dots on their toilet roll.
My 5-year-old is getting ready to go into Kindergarten so he worked on matching his lower-case and capital-letters. I wrote the lower-case letters on the toilet roll so there would be less of a chance of him rotating the lower-case letters and getting confused.
My 7-year-old worked on some addition fact. I admit that we haven't done as much math this summer as I had hoped, so this was a great opportunity to get him back to work.
I love this activity because it is so quick and easy to put together and you can literally customize it to fit any age or any topic. You could easily work in shapes, site words, subtraction, multiplication, or division facts. Also, keep in mind that the stickers that we used came off easily from the rolls. This made it easy for me to double-check their work and we were able to put the stickers back on their sheets and use them again. If you're looking for something to stay on permanently, I suggest trying a different type of sticker.
