10 Kid Approved Activities for a Letter of the Week Curriculum

Need some kid approved activities and crafts for your homeschool preschool? Click to see 10 of our favorite activities for a letter of the week curriculum.

In the past, I did a round-up of all the activities for each letter in our letter of the week curriculum. But due to computer and camera issues, I have fallen quite a bit behind. I have blogged through the letter M and instead of just stopping there, I thought I would do a quick round-up of some of our favorite activities from the rest of the alphabet. I hope some of our activities inspire you to add something to your letter of the week curriculum.

Letter N

For each letter, I tried to include a recipe. While I was planning for the letter N, these chocolate nests were floating around Pinterest. By the way, you can find many of the activities we incorporated in our homeschool preschool on this Pinterest board here!! These chocolate nests with candy eggs were a big hit with the girls. Just look at Fofo’s face!!

Weekly Wrap-up: Week One

Weekly Wrap-up

Last week wasn’t entirely the best week ever. (See more here) BUT we did have a productive week considering with my little 4 and 6 year old.

Calendar
Back when we first started doing sit-down work for homeschool, I had a daily calendar (that didn’t get done daily ahem) but Fofo didn’t express much interest or understand the concept of days, weeks, months, etc so I scrapped it. She recently mentioned how she wanted to start doing the calendar again. Luckily, I found this awesome printable from Carisa which the girls just loved!!

These were some of my favorite pictures from the week 🙂 Nothing fancy. Just my sweet little girls hard at work. Fofo’s name starts with M, so they didn’t need a lot of practice writing this letter 😉

Moose Antlers

My kids love the book “If you give a moose a muffin,” so I knew they would love making some moose antlers. I found the template here and printed it off.

CRAFT

I Feel Loved When . . . I wish I could remember where I got the idea for this craft, but the idea is simple. Ask your kids the simple question, “I feel loved when. . . ” attach their answers to a heart cut from construction paper. I let the girls pick out their own colors too. Fofo LOVED this activity and kept naming and naming things. My favorite is “when I try something new.” Fofo LOVES to try new things and wants to learn as much as possible.

This week I am recapping our crafts, sensory play, and recipe for the letter K. I wish I could sit here and pretend I am super creative and thought of all these activities on my own, but that’s not the case. Pinterest is such an awesome tool, and it’s where I find a lot of resources when my mom-brain can’t possibly think of one more activity or craft or sensory play for my kids.
