Kids generally love hands on activities and lessons. Easy crafts are always a great way to get them using their hands and their minds churning. It’s even better when those crafts can be a learning activity for them to learn more about the world. When it comes time for your child to learn the alphabet, it’s great to give them examples of words that start with each letter as well as show them how that letter looks. You can make lots of cute crafts that represent both of these that will not only be fun for your child, but teach them a lot about the world they live in and about the 26 letters of the alphabet. Here are 26 letter crafts that your child can make as they learn the alphabet.
1. A Is For Aligator
This alligator’s sharp teeth and googly eyes are sure to make any child excited about learning the letter A. Even the teeth look like the letter, which will drive the lesson home even more. They’re sure to remember this fierce face when thinking about the letter A in the future.
