Letter "Ll" Recognition Craft Projects & Activities




We spend one week reinforcing each letter with crafts and activities after it is introduced.


"Ll" is for Ladybug

Cut a ladybug shape from black construction paper. Give children a red circle the size of the ladybug body.


Draw a line down the middle of the red circle and have children cut them in half.

Glue as wings onto the black ladybug body. Have children dip their finger into black paint and press spots onto the ladybug wings.


"Ll" is for Ladybug Hats


Give children a red oval to cut out. Glue on a black ladybug head shape, black dots, and wiggle eyes. Glue or staple onto a hat band.




Paper Plate Ladybug


Paint a paper plate red. When dry fingerpaint black spots. For the older kids I stapled a black sheet of construction paper with ladybug head and legs. For the younger kids I just drew on the head with a black marker.


"Ll" is for Lion


Give children a paper plate with a space cut out for their mouth and eye holes. Color then glue curled strips of construction paper around the outer edge. Glue a lion muzzle to the middle.


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. See ideas for letter collage pages below.

Tell them to listen very carefully. When they hear a word that begins with the l sound, have them make an l with their hands and hold them up. Use L words such as lion, lake, lizard, lamb, log, lemon, ladder, leak, love, like, listen, and look.
