U is for Underwear

We are now studying tetter U and one of the words that begin with the short /u/ is underwear. Thought this would be a fun activity. I showed Caleb real underwear (no pictures of course!)– his, mine and Dada’s. Then we did this activity.

This is a wonderful activity for hand control, squeezing, and tracing!
