Did you complete last week’s “A is for Alligator” letter of the week craft? This week we are continuing with “B is for Butterfly”. Every week we will be bringing you a fun alphabet craft to do with preschoolers and kindergarteners. When you complete the series, you’ll be able to bind them together into a fantastic Animal Alphabet Book that your students have put together themselves! Let’s get started with this fun Animal Alphabet B is for Butterfly Craft!
Supplies for the Animal Alphabet B is for Butterfly Craft
Getting Ready for the Animal Alphabet B is for Butterfly Craft
Choose whether you’d like your students to have the tracing version of the craft (includes dotted letters to trace “B b is for Butterfly” 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 B is for Butterfly Craft
Once we finished our “A is for Alligator” craft, my students were already asking when we to start letter B! They really enjoyed the process of putting this project together themselves. First, I have my kids color and trace the sentence on the alphabet letter. (If you prefer, there is also a non-tracing version of the craft).
Next, they color their craft pieces and cut them out. If students need help visualizing what the final product is going to look like, they can refer to the example in the directions. The example is simply meant to be a guide, though. Creativity is encouraged!
After students color their craft pieces, they can cut them out and glue them to their letter B. Students can add antennae and a mouth using crayons or colored pencils.
That’s it! The completed project is something your students can be proud of displaying in the classroom or at home.
