e is for eagle

I’ve been a little slow on posts this week —  but we did manage to make our next letter in our alphabet series, letter E. Here’s the website where I’m searching for letter inspiration and then finding my own ways to make each letter.

What you’ll need:

  • Construction paper: white letter E, yellow beak, brown wings, white tail, and a piece to glue it all on
  • Glue Stick
  • Googly Eyes (I love these things!)

Since the tape isn’t quite doing it’s job on the wall, and I am always walking  in to find the masking tape (I’ve even tried painter’s tape!) stuck on the wall and the paper buried underneath whatever toys they had out on the floor, I’ve decided to instead use them to make a book. I can’t decide whether it’ll just be a binder and page protectors or scan them in and make a book on Shutterfly but I am liking this idea more and it’ll be something they can look through and hold onto down they road if they want.

d is for dog

Here’s our letter D craft we did this morning. I know I am repeating myself but a little prep ahead of time will make for a smoother project with these crazy little creatures (toddlers) with almost no attention span. My inspiration for letter D came from here.

What you’ll need:

  • Letter D — cut out of white paper (or be crazy and have a colored dog!)
  • Spots, Ear & Nose – cut out of black paper
  • Collar – any color you chose
  • Paper to glue the D on
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue Stick
