Alphabet Crafts - Letter E

Yesterday my four year old and I had some fun with the letter E. We made an Elephant mask, and we did a little letter E printing practice.

To make the elephant mask (per the photo below):

1)  Get the pieces ready for painting.  Draw two elephant ears on a piece of white paper, cut a strip from white card stock, and cut two eye-holes in a paper plate.

2)  Have the child paint all the pieces grey, and allow them to dry completely.  (I didn't have grey paint, so I mixed black and white... which my four year old thought was really fun.)

3)  Have the child cut out the ears and fold the trunk like an accordion.  Add a pink "snout" to the end of the trunk, and tape or glue the trunk in place.

4)  Tape or glue the ears in place, and add a craft stick to the back (to allow the child to hold the mask).

That's it! Cute, right?

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

If you are looking for other letter E crafts, you might want to try decorating an "E" with eyeballs.

Turning an "E" into an elephant is fun too.

Or you can make this adorable "egg" craft. Rip up a paper bag and glue the pieces onto a sheet of paper to make a nest. Then add a couple of eggs. If you cut one of the eggs in half, you can add a picture of your child hatching out of the egg. 

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