It’s time for another Letter of the Week! Today we are crafting with the Letter “D.” In the interest of transparency we did this craft a fews months ago, so it is indeed coming from the vault.
If you’ve been following along on social media you know that we’ve been pretty sick for a little while now (flu season). I am so happy to say that minus a few lingering coughs, we are feeling so much better. December is also a busy month for us, between family vacations and my little’s birthday we are busy bees.
Nonetheless, I loved our letters of the week centric crafts and wanted to share this! This letter of the week involves fine motor skills, paint and q-tips here we come!
D is a fun letter, the craft ideas are ample as there are so many words that start with the letter D. I like to employ fine motor skills where appropriate and using q-tips which force little fingers to grasp and pinch was the perfect solution. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts we used these letter of the week crafts as a supplement to practicing penmanship but these crafts are appropriate for teaching letter recognition as well.
“D” is for Dot
- Construction Paper
- Non-toxic washable glue-stick or children’s craft glue
- Paint (washable, non-toxic)
- Cut out the letter “D”
- Have child glue the letter to the construction paper
- Dip q-tips into paint and “dot” your letter “D”
- Let dry and display proudly!
