Letter H crafts for preschool as well as activities for homeschoolers.
Our preschool “curriculum” was super simple and followed the “Letter of the Week” format. For the letter “H” we did activities that related to hearts, hands, and hippos. At ages 3 and 5, we spent about 30 minutes to an hour each day doing these formal sit down activities and crafts. The girls spend a lot of time playing together. We also read books, walk the dogs, and spend time with our homeschool group.
Letter H Crafts for Preschool
We started off with sorting lower case and upper case H’s.
Then, we worked on tracing H’s. The handwriting printables are from 3 Dinosaurs Romping & Roaring ABC Packs
I love using these dry erase markers with the eraser on top. So handy for little hands!!
I laid out on the kitchen table some of the things around the house that started with the letter H. Plus some of the H’s from puzzles, flashcards, and the like. Pretty much all the cards were from the Target dollar spot and garage sales.
Play-doh is one of the most played with items in our house. After the girls rolled out their H’s on their play-doh mats, they poked holes in the H with a colored pencil.
We are continuing to work on our Animal ABCs from 1+1+1=1 and H is for hippo!
Bear works on tracing shapes.
Fofo glues her hippos on to her H. Elmer’s glue sticks are the way to go!
For our ABC book, H was for heart. The stickers we used were from an old calendar. But with two girls in the house, you can never have to many stickers! Click here for some cute and funky heart stickers.
It’s no secret that we are big fans of Pioneer Woman in this house. Ree made hand cookies at one point, and the girls were begging to make them also. So we gave them a whirl. They didn’t really turn our since the girls’ hands are so tiny, but we had plenty of heart cookies to go along with our hand cookies.
We had two activities for our messy play this week. The girls played with some of the cookie dough that we didn’t cook. We also did hand prints on the letter H. I didn’t get photos of the process but I did get pics of the finished product. No surprise Fofo used mostly pink in hers.
The paper I used was from our Ikea Mala drawing paper roll. The drawing paper roll fits on the IKEA Mala tabletop dispenser, and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s the perfect for a family of art lovers! I used the base of the dispenser to outline the two outside sections of the H, and the base of a three-hole punch (like this one!) for cross section.
Having 2 girls the same size can be tough. Especially when trying to figure out whose artwork is whose. I could tell Bear’s from the messy corner. She doesn’t always follow instructions 😉
My kids would go through stages where sometimes they loved to sit down and do worksheets. Then the next week they would rather do I letter based activities. It’s one of the awesome things about homeschooling that you can adjust your plans to what fits your kids best!
