Letter "Bb" Recognition Craft Projects & Activities

We spend one week reinforcing each letter with crafts and activities.
Schedule of Activities

"Bb" is for Butterfly
Paint these handprint butterflies on construction paper. When dry cut them out and glue to a craft stick to make a puppet.

Blotter Butterfly
Fold a piece of construction paper in half. Open and drip paint drops on one side. Children can use a spoon or drip straight from the bottle. Use at least 3 colors. Fold paper back over and rub all over to spread out the paint. Open and let dry. Add butterfly features.

"Bb" is for Bees & Beehive
For these we made the Bees and Beehive from our insect theme page.
We learned about bees and honeycomb (Hexagons)and then made our own honeycomb out of cereal and painted the bees with our thumbs. Insect Theme

More Bees

Use a 3 inch strip of construction paper. Add a few black stripes and eyes. Cut wings from grey or white. Staple into a circle with wings and a string on top.

Bat Puppet
From Mailbox Magazine. Email me for pattern. These are best laminated for durability. Use a white crayon to write a "B" on the back before laminating.

Bat Hat
Glue wings onto two strips of back construction paper and staple together to for a hat band in the size of the child's head.
Children can some glue eyes to the front.

"Bb" is for Bubbles
Fill a bowl with bubble solution mixed with a few drops of food coloring. Blow bubbles into the solution with a straw. When you have a nice layer of bubbles on the top lay a sheet of paper over them to create this bubble picture.

Alphabet Collage Books

During the school year we will make a page for every letter, number, shape, and color we are learning. Each week children will put their new collage pages into a binder kept at home. Parents are encouraged to use the binder to review the pages with their child regularly. At the end of the year the children will have a nice memento of their preschool year as well a a complete alphabet, number, color, and shape book.

Collage Ideas for Letter Bb
"Blue Balloons": use the lid from a juice bottle or other small round cap. Dip one end in blue paint and stamp onto paper. When dry, draw a blue line down from each for string.
Color the B blue,
Find things in magazines that start with Bb.
Letter B Sponge Painting
Invest in some Alphabet and misc. sponges for crafts like this, available from school supply stores. You can sometimes find them at hobby stores, $1 store, or Walmart. We use ours to make a page like this for every letter we are learning from September through May. Parents are encouraged to take them home and post them where the child can see and practice every day. When we finish the entire alphabet they can make them into a book or put them into a binder (You will need to cut down the construction paper if you want to put them into a binder.

Group Time Activity

Bouncing For B's
Tell children to stand in a circle. Then have them bounce a ball to each other and say a word beginning with the letter B. Start by saying the word book, and then bounce the ball to a child in the circle. The child mist then say a B word, such as box, and then bounce the ball to another child. Keep playing until everyone has said at least two words.
