I am sure there are thousands of ideas on how you could use these – from
simply using them as coloring pages or tracing learning pages to some of the
uses listed below. Feel free to suggest any ideas that you have found useful.
Need paper plates. Have your child color the Arabic Alphabet letters.
Find pictures either in magazines or online and paste them to cardstock or

the cards, you might want to actually write on the card (below the picture)
the actual name of the object – showing that it starts with a particular letter
until your child becomes more familiar.
Using glitter, macaroni, string or other craft items, create a poster for the
Arabic Alphabet letter. Let your child decorate the letter and draw pictures
of items that begin with that letter.
