Letter D Craft for Preschoolers


Letter crafts are a fun, hands-on way to teach your preschooler their ABCs!  Creating a letter craft for each letter is a great visual and tactile way to learn and play with the alphabet.  We are crafting every letter of the alphabet from A-Z; today is a letter D craft preschoolers will LOVE; D is for Dog!

I look forward to sharing the rest of our alphabet crafts with you-- my daughter has been having a lot of fun!   I love that our letter crafts are giving her a 'peg' to hang all the bits and pieces of learning that is happening throughout our day.  Today's alphabet craft is D is for Dog.  

Can you tell what kind of dog our craft was inspired by? 

The Dalmatian!!


This Letter D craft is a great way to strengthen fine motor skills!

To set up our D is for Dog alphabet craft, you'll need to gather:

Letter D Craft

Begin by squirting a little bit of black paint into a bowl and watering it down with water.  Set up several cotton pads on a tray.

Encourage your little one to squeeze the pipette into the watered down black paint and squirt it on the cotton pads to create black spots.

While your child is busy squirting black paint onto the cotton pads, cut ears and a tail from the black construction paper.

Once Little Sis was done, we continued on with our alphabet craft even though the cotton pads were still wet.  

On a white sheet of paper, we made a 'D' shape with glue and then Little Sis added cotton pads to the glue.  

Then we added ears, a tail, and googly eyes.
