Alphabet Crafts - Letter S

My 4 year old and I are continuing to craft our way through the alphabet, and yesterday afternoon we had some fun with the letter S. We made a Snake puppet, and we did some letter S printing practice.

To make your own snake puppet:

1) Cut a 2 inch strip of construction paper or card stock (for the snake's body). 
2) Draw and cut out a simple head and tail.
3) Fold the body like an accordion.
2) Glue a googly eye onto the head, and draw the rest of the snake's face.
3) Glue the head and tail onto the body, and allow to dry completely.
4) Attach stir sticks or craft sticks to the head and tail of the snake (using tape).

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

Looking for more "Letter S" crafts for Preschoolers? 

You can make a "Letter S Snake" by: colouring an S, and adding googly eyes, gluing on a paper tongue, and adding some circle stickers.

You can also make a snowman craft by gluing circles and a hat onto a piece of blue paper and then adding details (and the letters of the child's name) with markers or crayons.

Crafting a popsicle stick snowflake is another simple letter S craft that is great for Preschoolers working on their fine motor skills. An adult can use hot glue and popsicle sticks to make a snowflake, and the child can add stickers to make the snowflake glitter.

And... how cute is this shark craft? Draw a shark on a piece of paper, colour the shark, glue on blue construction paper "water", and blue on a couple of googly eyes.

Fun, right? Next up... the Letter "T"!
