I‘ve been doing a series of Preschool Alphabet Crafts as Mia has been completing them at school. We finally got to Z! I thought I’d put together a roundup of all the letters and some tips for doing the project at home.
- Construction paper
- Scrap paper
- Any craft materials (pompoms, tissue paper, pipe cleaners, glitter, etc.)
- Any recycled materials (bottle caps, straws, etc.)
- Paints, markers, crayons, color pencils
- Holidays – Consider the time of year you are doing your project with your kids. For example, glue red noses on an “N” at Christmas time or Easter Eggs on the letter “E” during the spring.
- Colors – Cut out letters in a corresponding color, for example a yellow “Y” and glue yellow items to the letter, or images that are typically yellow (bananas, chicks, the sun, etc.)
- Fruits and Vegetables – glue images of fruits and vegetable that start with the chosen letter.
- Toys – Use what you have. For example, for the letter “T” use a toy truck, dip the wheels in black paint and create tracks on the letter “T”.
- When all else fails, print images that start with the letter, cut them out, and glue them on!
Here are the direct links for the letters and some ideas in case you missed it.
