Making Noodle Necklaces is a fun activity to introduce young children to learn about the letter N. It is a super simple and fun craft activity to identify what the letter N looks like and what sound it makes.  Making Noodle Necklaces also provides an opportunity to talk about the letter, make connections with spoken language and real life experiences.

 

Threading pasta into Noodle Necklaces is also a great activity for fine motor development and eye-hand coordination.
