Alphabet Crafts - Letter D

Yesterday my four year old and I had some fun with the letter D. We made a Dog puppet, and we did a little letter D printing practice.

To make the dog puppet:

1) First, fold a sheet of paper into thirds, and then fold it into an accordion. {Per below.} Note: You can tape the edges together after the first fold for a neater look, but it isn't necessary.

2) Cut out two black doggy ears and a black circle (snout), and glue into place.

3) Use glue to attach the doggy's eyes and nose.

That's it! Cute, right?  Stick your thumb in the bottom section and your fingers in the top section, and your puppy is ready perform.

After our craft, we did a little printing practice. If you want to practice printing the letter D with your little one, you can right-click on the picture below, save it to your computer, and print it.

If you are interested in more "letter d" crafts, check out this darling dog made from a letter d. Draw or use your computer to make a "D" on a piece of paper. Color the "D", and then use glue to attach an paper ear, a paper collar, a googly eye, and a button nose. 

A duck puppet is another simple option. Start with a half circle of card stock, glue on a head, beak, googly eyes, and feather. Then, tape a craft stick to the back. Cute, right?

You can also use stickers to decorate a letter "D". It doesn't get much easier than this simple craft, and kids love stickers!

Fun, right? Next up... the letter "E"! :-)
