Wingdings Vacation

Here is a fun activity to try with your kids.  Open a Word document and type in all the keyboard characters and upper and lowercase letters at 100 point size.  Copy and paste several times and change the font to Wingdings 1, Wingdings 2, Wingdings 3, and Webdings plus any other symbol fonts you have.  Print them out, cut them up, and arrange them into stories!  Here are a few to get inspired.  This is a great activity for a pre-reader to get them thinking sequentially and empower them with storytelling tools they understand!  Have fun!

  1. Ann, you are a fountain of creativity and productivity! I love this! Much to my chagrin we haven’t owned a printer in two years (sure has saved a lot of paper), so I can’t do this one, but I think it sounds like a lot of fun!

    • Thanks Tiffanie! Sometimes I wish I didn’t have a printer – my daughter prints way too many things and we go through paper like crazy!!! I got the idea from a cute Haba “Tell me a story” tin we have that has little tiles with fairy-tale pictures that you can arrange into stories.

    • Thanks! & after story-fun you can move to phase 2 of this activity – picking up all the Wingding confetti on you floor!

  2. I’m glad that I’m not the only one who likes Wingdings fonts! They are fun, aren’t they?! I once used the make a preschool book like “Star of the Week.”

    Well, actually, I just used them for a counting page from 1 to 10 with different wingdings for the objects.

    • Cool, is it in a post, I’d like to see! Love easy ideas! I also used them on my gift-tag printables recently ; ) Thanks!
