Why Make a Letter K Craft

Great Fine Motor Practice

This letter K craft involves coloring, cutting, placing tiny pieces of paper, and gluing items down.

All of these tasks are great for working fine motor muscles.

These little hand muscles need to be used often to get strong so your little one can zip a coat, hold a pencil, and tie a shoe.

It is Adorable

How cute is a mama kanga and a joey?! Your little one will love making this adorable letter K craft.

Letter Practice

Preschoolers need to be introduced and exposed to letters frequently in order for them to stick.

This kangaroo craft is adorable, yes, but it also lets your preschooler see the letter K.

Kangaroo starts with K, and your little one may be able to recall turning a K into a kangaroo when they are trying to recall what sound we use for the letter K.

These alphabet crafts serve as a letter-sound memory device of sorts.
