Another fun way to help children learn how to read with art is to:

Use the letters to spell out words. You can use the letters you make to spell out your child’s name or to spell out simple words.  

Use the letters to decorate your learning area.  As your child starts to get the hang of reading, you can challenge them by asking them to identify the letter and the sound it makes on their own. For example, you might show them a letter with a picture of an apple on top and ask them what sound the letter makes. This can help to reinforce their understanding of the different sounds each letter makes.

This is one of the activities from my activity book: Pre-K The Fun Way
The book contains many fun and engaging activities that help your child learn while having fun.
