This little project was done by us together for the Art Fest conducted by his School. The alphabets given to us were Kk,Ll,Mm,Nn,Oo (10 letters) since we have already done a “Letter of the Week Craftivity” it was fun doing it again for the Art Fest but a little bigger ones (it was mentioned as the Alphabet Wall) 😎
We’ll make the letters in order one by one as follows: 💁🏻♀️
At first when I heard that we had been given this project was little bit disappointed on how we were gonna make it… but after we started, this craftivity was indeed a simply fantastic project to make with my little one..
Some letters might have little flaws but who cares this was done by my Baby Moo (with mommy & daddy shelp 😁) and I think it’s 💯% Flawless 😍😎
Make our Alphabet wall project as the letter of the week craftivity and have an Incredibly Creative evenings my lovelies 😍
Stay tuned!!! For more Alphabetical Creative Craftivity from the ChennaiMom 🙏🏻❤️
Fold the Blue chart (Color is of your choice) twice to form the 1/4th size (as mentioned by his school)
We learned O for Octopus 🐙, Orange Color, (base blue chart representing the) Ocean 🌊 (mid of the letter O is in the form of the) Oval shape
Draw and cut the letter O along with 8 tentacles from the plain paper and then keeping it as the model cut the letter from the White chart paper
Place the tentacles on the body (letter O) and Mark the tentacles for the easy gluing by the little ones
Place the letter O along with the tentacles and let your little one Color it (here we used orange Color)
Once coloured place the body and the tentacles, for the little ones to glue them together and onto the blue chart to form “the Orange Octopuswith the Oval shape in the middle swimming in the blue Ocean🌊 chart“ (we even glued two eyes from the letter M crafts and also drew a mouth)
Fold the white chart in fourth to make 1/4th size (this size was mentioned by the school.. but you can make it into a smaller version by using normal A4 size too.. totally up to you)
Draw the capital K on a newspaper and keeping it as the outline we are gonna cut the letter from the blue chart
As we have taken the word K-Kite mommy drew some diamond ♦️ on a white paper and Baby Moo coloured all the diamond (colors of his choice) we cut those diamonds and Baby Moo glued small threads at the ends (to form a kite) and also to secure the threads we glued a small rectangular paper on it
We glued the kites inside the letter K (as the kites flies in the sky) also we glued some cotton in between the kites to give a cloud ☁️ effect 😁
Since there is a change of weather in Chennai we combined our ‘letter of the week + craft activity’ together into the following ‘Craft Learning’ ?
Blue chart/ blue Color paper (here I have used the scrap blue handmade paper from the 7 Continents activity)
Card stock/ Thick paper
Cotton, sequins, paint,.. (craft decorating items of your choice)
Letter Ww Craft Making:
??For the Uppercase Alphabet W:
Cut 4 rectangular strips (Sunny, Cloudy, Rainy, Snowy days) from the blue chart paper and Place it along with the materials of cottons, sequins, paints…
And teach your little one to make the types of weather on each rectangular strips of the letter W as shown below
Let your little one glue the types of weather striped rectangular paper they made in the shape of W onto the card stock (Color of your choice which acts as the base, we glued our W onto a scrap black foam sheet) as shown below
As they make the letter W they not only learn about the letter W but also the words weather, sunny day, cloudy day, rainy day, snowy day.. ?
??For the Lowercase alphabet w:
Since we dint have the required Color paper at the moment we improvised by making our own…
Horizontally Divide the A4 sheet into two and let your little one Color the upper part in blue Color and the lower part in brown Color (to make the sky and the mud/soil) respectively
Mommy helped Baby Moo to draw (snake shaped) grasses in the mud
Then draw small w on a Color paper (of your choice) and cut it and let your little one glue it onto the scenery paper made
[Baby Moo even gave eyes and a smiling face for the little worm and said it’s a good worm mommy ??]
Here they learn the words worm, grass, green, mud, soil, sky.. ?
Make these fun crafts at home and “Enjoy the Changes in the Weather with your cute little worms” my lovelies ?
Stay tuned!!! For more “Letter of the Week Crafts” from the ChennaiMom ??❤️
??♀️We get freshly grounded coffee powder from Nilgiris shop in Chennai and mommy got an idea on seeing those coffee beans to match it up with basic mathematics and improve Baby Moos counting skills and thus the following activity??
Take the cardboard draw the shape of the cup that your toddler is using (number of cups to be drawn is totally of your choice) I drew ten cups since we are gonna practice the counting of numbers from 1-10
Once drawn place the coffee beans and cardboard on a flat surface and let your little ones have some counting fun my lovelies ?
Take paper tea/coffee cups (no. Of cups is of your choice)
Cut a small handles from a cardboard and glue/insert it on/into the paper cups as shown below ??
**[Note: If the handles are glued, storage of the cups for later play would be a bit difficult… But if the handles are inserted into the cups, the storage is super easy ➡️ as the cups can be stacked up + handles are removable = takes less space]**
Write the numbers (of your choice) on the handles (First we counted from 1-10 then from 11-20)
Place the cups along with some coffee beans near your toddler and encourage them to read the number aloud and drop in the required amount of coffee beans inside the coffee cups and let them make some tasty fun coffee counting ?
He spent a whole hour playing with the coffee beans after learning some counting.., he even brought his construction vehicles along to play with while mommy prepared dinner for him…? This was a super simple to make and highly effective activity that was totally approved by Baby Moo ?
Make these cute counting cups and ‘brew’ some ‘counting skills’ into your little ones my lovelies?
Stay tuned!!! For more ‘brewed drinking’ activities from the ChennaiMom ??❤️
