Preschool Letter Craft – F is for Flower

Because I’m a preschool homeschooling mom I’ve been told by countless mamas that I need to do letter crafts with my daughter.  I say that she knows her letters, their sounds, and can even sound out small words on her own.  They tell me that I still need to do this so that is what I’m doing.  Reinforcing the alphabet!

I probably should have started with the letter A but we had pretty silk flowers just sitting around waiting to be used so I jumped ahead to F.  The order of the alphabet isn’t too important at this age anyway, is it?

For our letter craft we added flowers to the letter F!  It’s self-explanatory really but here’s what we did.

Grabbed our tube of flowers.  We got them from Amazon here ages ago and they have lasted and lasted.  A good craft investment!  Gathered, paper, glue, and a marker for Mommy to write the letter F.

1.  Freehand the letter F.  If you’re OCD, like I have a tendency to be sometimes, I’m sure you could make a letter of humongous proportions in Word or Google for an F template.

2.  Let your kiddo pick out their favorite flowers.  Layer them, arrange them.

3.  Let them loose with the glue and voila!  Oh, and you might want to mention somewhere in there that flowers start with the letter F.

Happy crafting, ya’ll!

Shamrock Bead Craft for Kids

My daughter loves pony beads, I mean loves them!  Whether it’s stringing them on pipe cleaners or gluing them on paper.  She can’t get enough.  Maybe it’s because it’s one craft that she doesn’t need much help from me on.  I don’t mind because it’s a great exercise for her fine motor skills.

Yesterday, she asked to do a craft with beads.  After I scratched my brain for a moment I came up with this idea!  She loaded the pipe cleaner with beads and then I bent it into the shape of a shamrock.  We were originally going to hang it up as a sun catcher (with these suction cups) but she’s had too much fun carrying it around for that.

If you have a pony bead craft to share I’d love to hear about it!

Shamrock Craft for Kids

This shamrock craft took only moments to make and my daughter had so much fun making it.  She “painted” on the front of a card that we’ll be mailing to her grandparents for St. Patrick’s Day.

Clover Crafts for Kids

We used a shamrock cut out that we got from the dollar store.  You could always find a clover online, print it, and then cut it out too!  We taped it to our card (folded cardstock).  I found an unused pencil and let her loose stamping away.  Notice how she even made a design on the paper plate as she dotted the excess paint.  What an arteest! : )

We used our favorite Crayola washable paint so it was okay if we accidentally got a little paint on her clothes.

St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Craft


This lovely piece of art has been hanging on my refrigerator for almost a year now.  I just love it!  I can’t take credit for it though.  My daughter made this craft with the help of her Sunday School teacher.  The idea is simple enough though that I wanted to share it with you in case you have a little one that might enjoy a rainbow craft.  Paper, glue, crayons, Fruit Loops, and cotton balls are all you need for rainbow magic.
