ABC Easy Crafts for Kids

ABC Easy Crafts for Kids gives an A-Z guide of educational activities that will keep your kids busy on a rainy day. If you are going to entertain your children with a fun art and craft project, why not take the opportunity to teach them phonics, and to recognize the capital and small letter of the alphabet.

If you want to teach your kids the alphabet and also keep their hands busy, here's an easy list of things you can do with them. These activities are suitable for pre-schoolers.

Ants, Ants, Everywhere!

Craft activity : On the outline of the letter A or a, children can make finger print 'ants' all over their artwork in black or red paint (or be creative with multi-coloured ants!). You can add the 6 legs afterwards with a black marker when the paint is dry. Introduce children to ants and their physical features as insects. This encourages exploration and sensorial discovery.

Apple Printing

Arts & Craft : Children can learn more about the apple fruit and its characteristics. Slice the apple in half and dip in paint. Apple print in Red or Green. Develop math skills by teaching children to count the number of red or green apple prints on the drawing block.

Butterfly Wings

Craft project : On the shape of a butterfly, children can use paints to create symmetrical patterns on butterfly wings.

They can also do some eggplant printing on drawing block making different patterns or shapes.

Worm Art
