B is for Bear 300x401 Alphabet Craft:  B is for Bear

Alphabet Crafts are a great way to reinforce letter names and sounds while also incorporating multiple domains of development.  I have attempted a few alphabet crafts with Little Brother, starting with letter “a” (which ended up being somewhat of a disaster).  After a month-long break, we are trying once again.  I am happy to say, this alphabet craft went much better than the last one!

Here’s what you’ll need:  cardboard or brown cardstock, dried coffee grounds, scissors, glue, googly eyes, and pom-poms.

This alphabet craft was inspired by a plate we bought on MAJOR clearance at Pottery Barn Kids.

1.  Make the letter “B” on cardstock or cardboard and the nose, mouth, hands, ears, etc.  I would recommend using brown paper/cardboard instead of white since the bear will look much more natural this way.

2.  Glue all the bear parts onto the “B”.

 3.  Have your child use a cotton swab to spread the liquid glue as evenly as possible over the entire surface.

 5.  Cover the surface completely and let dry.

6.  Add a googly eye, a black pom-pom for the nose, and a blue pom-pom for a blueberry.
