Letter the Alphabet through Crafts

Learning the alphabet can be challenging for preschoolers.

Memorizing what each letter looks like, how to write it, and the sounds associated with each letter can become overwhelming quickly.

By making a letter recognition hands-on (and a craft), littles can recall what they made easier.

This, in turn, makes it easier to remember what sound to use for E because your little one remembers that the E was turned into an e-e-elephant while making the letter E craft.

If you choose to do all 26 letters, you can hang them up to create a letter line that your preschooler can refer back to when talking about letter sounds.
