CVC words – Writing on the Light Table


For this activity you will need

  • A light table
  • Paint in assorted colours
  • Ziplock bags
  • Sticky  tape
  • Paper


This activity is super simple but it was perfect for encouraging my son to practice his letter formation and spelling of cvc words. I initially set up the paint bags for my 4 month old (see activity here) but, as Olly was immediately drawn to them I decided to seize the opportunity simply by adding a few cvc words written on coloured paper for him to copy.


He got straight to work.


This activity worked really well for Olly because he very much dislikes writing but the sensory-seeker in him could not resist moving his fingers around the paint.


I hope you enjoy this activity as much as we did.

I’d love to hear/see how you encourage your reluctant-writers. Feel free to comment below or share with me on Instagram. Just add #reluctant_writers @xoxo_beautiful_chaos_xoxo
