Introductory activity

What you will need:

  • A can of shaving cream
  • A smooth plastic surface (like a table or a plate)
  • A paper towel or a napkin

What to do:

  1. Spray a layer of shaving cream on the plastic plate.
  2. Use your finger and draw the letter K in the shaving cream. Tell your child to repeat the name and the sound that K makes (‘kuh’).
  3. Re-spread the shaving cream evenly over the plate and ask your child to draw a K in the shaving cream.
  4. Feel free to use this opportunity to have more fun drawing things in the shaving cream that start with the letter K, such as a king, a kangaroo, or or the kitchen of a house.


If your child learns the capital letter K right away, introduce the lower case letter k.
