This morning, my four year old and I had some fun with the letter G. We made a guitar craft, and we did a little letter G printing practice.
My music loving boy loves this adorable craft made from recycled materials.
To make a tissue box guitar:
1) Gather your supplies. You'll need an empty tissue box, a strip of cardboard (from an old box), six buttons, six elastics, glue, a marker, and duct tape.
2) Have the child draw strings on the neck of the guitar/strip of cardboard. Then, have the child use white glue to decorate the top of the strip with buttons.
3) Have the child wrap six elastics (of various sizes) around the tissue box.
4) Attach the neck of the guitar to the tissue box with duct tape.
After our craft, we did a little printing practice. If you want to practice printing the letter G with your little one, you can right-click on the picture below, save it to your computer, and print it.
We ended our crafting session with a little snack... because "G" is for goldfish, and all that crafting and printing can build up an appetite!
And if you are looking for more letter G crafts, why not try decorating a letter G with crayons and goldfish?
This adorable letter "G" gumball machine is sweet too! The "gumballs" are stickers.
And this handprint goldfish couldn't be cuter. Trace the child's hand to make the fish, and use white glue to add a googly eye and Cheerios air bubbles.
Next up, the letter "H".
