Do you do letter of the week activities with your preschoolers? For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Letter of the Week, it is a practice which devotes an entire week to learning about one letter- the way it looks, how it sounds, words that begin with that letter, etc. This week we are continuing with our Animal Alphabet Letter of the Week crafts with Letter U is for Unicorn craft. Join us!
Supplies for the Animal Alphabet U is for Unicorn Craft
Getting the Animal Alphabet U is for Unicorn Craft Ready
Choose whether you’d like your students to have the tracing version of the craft (includes dotted letters to trace “U u is for Unicorn” at the bottom of the page), or the non-tracing version. Print out enough letters for each student. Also be sure to print off enough copies of the craft pieces for each student (plus a couple extras for mistakes).
Doing the Animal Alphabet U is for Unicorn Craft
I told my kids we were going to be doing an “Unicorn” craft. We talked about how unicorns are actually fictional creatures (unlike the narwhals we made for letter N), and we could let our imaginations go wild with them!
After coloring, my kids traced the “U u is for Unicorn” text below the letter. This is optional and there are also sheets which do not include the tracing text.
Next, I passed out the paper with the craft pieces on it. The craft pieces include a horn, head, mane, and tail. My kids colored each piece and, using child-safe scissors, carefully cut each piece out of the sheet.
Using the example as a guide, they then glued the craft pieces onto the letter U.
I think their unicorns came out just perfect! We will be saving them to bind into an Animal Alphabet Book at the end of the series!
