Environmental print is the print all around us. It is usually the first print that young children can read, such as Wal-Mart or McDonalds. Children are naturally interested in this print so it is a great motivator for colors, shapes, letters, numbers, words, etc. Environmental print is easy and cheap (if not FREE) to collect!
I created a cereal box book. I used mini boxes of cereal. After eating the cereal (my son was super excited about this step!), I cut the front face off the boxes. I simply laminated them and bound them on the side.
Quick, easy, and very interesting to young children!
