Using crafts to teach the alphabet is the perfect mix of learning and play, which is a great way for little ones master a new concept. These letter B crafts for toddlers and preschoolers will not only help your child with letter recognition but also with practicing the letter B sound and begining to write the letter.

It’s also a great way to improve fine motor skills and more. Hands-on activities like these fun letter B crafts help a child engage all of the senses and increase retention for what they’re learning. And you can use these activities are a fun way to learn both the lower case letters and the upper case letters.

I bet you’ve never heard of craft flashcards…Of course you haven’t…because I totally made it up 🙂 As a pediatric Occupational Therapist, I’ve witnessed kids struggle to complete multi-step activities. So, I came up with this brilliant (if I do say myself) way to break down crafts into bite-sized pieces in the form of flashcards.

These are especially perfect for those kiddos who have limited attention spans.

Crafts are such a great developmental tool for kids (improves motor planning, attention span, executive functioning, fine motor skills, language development and more), and using flashcards makes planning crafts for your kids to enjoy even easier.

Just print out a few of your favorites onto cardstock, cut them into the cards with a hole in the corner and place them on a keyring that you can connect to your craft supply bag (which you can fill using our master list of supplies that we stick to for every single one of the projects in the flashcard collection). It’s so simple.

And the best part is that there’s not a screen in sight. Technology is such a great thing, but it’s also nice to take a break from it once in awhile and let the brain explore in other ways. Click the image to learn more about our collection of 100 Craft Flashcards for Kids.

Tips from an OT for Teaching Letter Formation

When kiddos are learning to write letters, I always start with the upper case letters because their formation if much simpler. That doesn’t mean you can’t also be introducing how the lower case letters look and which ones go together.

But even with name writing, I always teach it all in capital letters first and then introduce what I call “the kindergarten way” which is in title case (first letter capitalized and the rest are lowercase).

Of course, I always start with lots of alphabet activities that don’t even involve a pencil and paper to get to know the letters of the alphabet through play first.
