Letter U Unicorn Craft

Teach your toddler or preschooler all about the Letter U with this fun U is for Unicorn Letter Craft!   Letter Crafts are such an awesome, hands-on way to learn the ABC's!

Umbrella, underwater, ... underwear..... Unicorn!

That was my thought process when deciding what we should make for the letter u, the next letter in our Crafting Through the Alphabet Series.

Up until now, we have made a craft to go with the short sound of all the vowels, but there wasn't too much to work with for the Letter U!  A few years ago during Tot School with Little Sis, we did U for Underwater, so I wanted to do something different this time around.

So why not make a magical unicorn?!  Unicorns are the "in" thing right now!

While I was prepping this activity for Little Sis, she was prepping this activity for Little Brother!  Looking back on it now, it was pretty cute-- but, in the middle, it was quite chaotic.  Which pretty much sums up my life with 4 kiddos!

U is for Unicorn Craft

To prep the activity, draw out a letter U, a small triangle for the horn, and an oval like shape for the head.

Typically I have everything cut for Little Sis, but since I was still pulling stuff from the shelves, I had her practice her scissor skills by cutting out the letter U.

Prior to gluing everything else on, we glued the letter U to another piece of paper.

Next, Glue the googly eye to the unicorn's head.  Add a smile with a marker.

Totally optional, but Little Sis chose to make lines with glitter glue on the horn-- later she made the Unicorn's body sparkly, too.

Continue working on scissor skills by cutting various lengths of colorful yarn to attach to the Unicorn's mane and tail.  Glue the yarn onto the letter.

Don't forget while crafting to come up with some other words that begin with the letter u!  Little Sis has loved having this visual to help her remember each letter.

When she asks what the letter u is next time, I can say u is for unicorn {much better than u is for underwear! Ha!}
