Notable Entries to the Ultimate Alphabet Craft Exchange--Part 1
A huge THANK YOU goes out to all of the people who have linked up their ideas to the Ultimate Alphabet Craft Collection. The collection keeps growing and growing. It truly has become a one-stop-shop for great alphabet craft ideas thanks to your help. I have gained so much inspiration from all of the great ideas. I hope you have too.
ALL of the ideas linked up are fantastic. I wanted to share with you my personal picks for the letters A-H today:
I love this idea from the blog Inspiration Astounds Creativity Abounds. It is a great idea to get all of those large muscle groups involved in learning the alphabet. Playing off of "A is for Acrobat" she made a huge letter A out of masking tape on the floor. The kids then play a game where they have to walk the letter A like a tight rope. I know my kinesetic learners will love this idea. This game and other ideas are available for download on her blog.
Check out this cooking craft for the letter B from Mama Jenn. It is an edible Bird's Nest. Isn't it lovely? And I bet it tastes delicious!
For those that know me, I love cardinals dearly. So I know we will have to try this "C is for Cardinal" idea from the blog The Fantastic Five.
If you haven't checked out the blog, Our Life you are missing out! It is a beautiful blog full of many great ideas. I love her Letter D crafts and activities. Her family learned that D is for Dirt. (How fun is that?!) And they made a cute "D is for Dots" craft.
Totally Tots has a complete collection of both upper and lower case alphabet crafts. This is one of my favorite as I think it turned out adorable. It is an Egg for the lowercase letter e.
The blog This and That has a whole page of Letter F activiites and crafts. I liked this "F is for Feather" craft that they did. I think that the tactile element of this craft would make it irrestible for most kids.
Brimful Curiosities made a GIANT Giarff from the letter G. Didn't it turn out amazing?
I think that this is such a cute letter H craft. This comes from The Sellers who learned that H is for Hearts.
So these are my personal picks for the week. What are yours? If this collection has been a blessing to you, please leave the blogs a comment letting them know you appreciate all of their hard work.
