Alphabet Crafts for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Alphabet Crafts are a crucial part of every preschool curriculum. Even if you stay at home with your toddler getting them ready for school should be a part of your routine. Whether you do a letter of the day, week, or month,  you’ll want to include at least one craft for each letter to engage kinetic and visual learners.

This is my collection of alphabet crafts I’ve done with Roo.  I’ve also included an Amazon shopping list of supplies you’ll need to make the crafts. Most use the same supplies, so there isn’t much.

alphabet craft the letter Z made from Zippers

Take an old zipper (I cut this one from an outgrown pair of PJs) and cut it in 3 pieces. Have the child glue the pieces in a Z shape.


Alphabet Craft Keepsake Book

You’ll need a large three ring binder, like this one, and at least 13 clear page protectors. Insert each craft into a page protector and clip it in the binder. Not only will you have a keepsake of your child’s crafts, but they will have an alphabet book to review! The page protectors keep the glitter and other items in place better than just punching holes into the construction paper, and they won’t tear as easily. I had Roo paint a picture for the cover and I wrote the year over the top. It’s one of my favorite keepsakes, and Roo takes a lot of pride in seeing her alphabet crafts displayed!

Prepping crafts ahead of time helps keep preschoolers engaged. Sketching out the shapes for the letters was probably the most time consuming part. If you subscribe to my email list I’ll send you FREE templates for all the letter crafts!

  1. This could be kids learning and being creative at the same time 🙂
    great article dear ..
    keep writing 🙂

    1. Thanks! It’s what we do every day

  2. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. and I use the Brigsby theme

  3. Such a well written post! I just have to try this out with my toddler! Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. Thanks for the praise, my toddler loved them. Enjoy!
