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.

A is for Alligator
B is for Bee
C is for Caterpillar
D is for Duck
E is for Elephant and Eagle
Isn’t this elephant alphabet craft cute? Paint your child’s hand and press it to the paper. Once it’s dry draw on the features!
F is for Feather
G is for Giraffe
H is for Hearts
I is for Igloo
Draw the shape of an igloo (or print out my template!) and have the child fill it with cotton balls. Trace the lines with glue and sprinkle with glitter. I used a lot of glue then hung it while wet to get the drips!
J is for Jellyfish and Jewel
Look closely to find the Js hidden as the tentacles on this jellyfish letter craft!
K is for Koala
L is for Leaves
M is for Mountain
N is for Night and Necklace
Jewels stuck along a pre-drawn line, great for fine motor and pre-writing practice!
O is for Owl
P is for Pig
Q is for Quilt
Fabric scraps are glued to the template to make a Quilt!
R is for Rain and Rainbow
We used white, purple, and blue pom poms to make this puffy rain cloud.
This was great practice for Color matching and the Rainbow order!
S is for Squirrel
T is for Tiger and Tree
Green and Brown paper scraps are glued to the top and bottom of a pre-drawn T shape.
U is for Unicorn and Umbrella
Half of a paper plate and a pipe cleaner make up this umbrella, while the rain was main by blowing blue water color with a straw!
V is for Vegetables
Save your next grocery store coupon list and cut out pictures of vegetables for your child to glue over a V shape.
W is for Watermelon and Whale
Another cute hand print craft this time made into a whale by adding a tail and face!
X is for Xylaphone
This alphabet craft was great practice for lining up things by size!
Y is for Yarn
Cut a Y from cardstock and have the child wrap yarn around it.
Z is for Zebra and Zipper
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!
