Letter B Book Pages

Apples and Jammies is making an ABC book, the B page has been made with beans
Storytime and More and her daughter made their letter B with bubble art.
Just for Fun made a B is for Birds finger print project.

Annette at the Whipples is working on an ABC sound book. She uses Goggle images and family pictures to represent words her daughter can say that start with B. See other pages here. What a great idea to have make a child led book, that her daughter can read when it's done.

More Fun with Letter B
Letters, Numbers, and Books Oh My made a blue shades and tints painting with her daughter. They also did this bumblebee craft and made a letter B picture by gluing on punched out butterfly shapes.
Make a B is for picture: B is for Bear! B is also for blue, bow, button, and band-aid with Boots on it!
Make a hibernating bear, like on Preschool Playbook.
You can also play balloon ball by making a cone shape out of paper. Blow up a balloon and toss it up in the air, try to catch it on your cone.

Sort, count, and graph gummy bears. What a sweet treat of an activity!

We will be featuring several butterfly activities in an upcoming post that would also be perfect for a springtime letter study of B, so keep your eye out for it! We got a ton of submissions and we're excited to share everyone's great ideas!

Adventures of a Flake made a letter B breakfast muffin tin meal, it included bagels with blackberry jam, brown chocolate milk, blueberries and bananas. This post also shares a summary of her B week plans. Another yummy letter B activity they did, was to make banana bread and butter, sounds delicious!

Make a Bear Face by taking a rice cake and spreading with peanut butter. Use banana slices for the ears. Add a mini ritz cracker for the muzzle and two raisins for eyes.

Read a version of Teddy Bear's Picnic, then have a real picnic and invite all your furry friends. Spread out a blanket either inside or outside if the weather is nice. You can serve anything you like but Teddy Grahams would certainly be appropriate!
