Letter J Activities

Welcome! New to ABC and 123?
Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.
Make a creation out of Jell-O, like this watermelon from Mama Jenn.

Put together Susana's Super Jet!

Cassie made Jellyfish & Jam to teach the letter J.

Jolathe submitted a post all about the letter J, which included this adorable Jack in a Box.

Sandra from Celebrate Every Day submitted an idea for a J is for Jungle mural.

The Home Teacher suggest some J fun:
~hold a family jazz festival where you listen to jazz music and dance around!
~make a family jeopardy game where you have to answer questions about each other
~play jenga
~go on a jungle safari to your local library and check out books about jungle animals

Brandy from Adventures of a Flake has a whole series of Letter J posts that feature great activities like musical jars, painting a jungle scene, recreating the classic rhyme Jack be Nimble, and counting out jellybeans.

Michelle at Delightful Learning sent us their Java Dough, "A silky smooth dough that smells like fresh-brewed coffee. We experimented with the recipe from Kid Concoctions and came up with a fun dough with an interesting feel and smells good!"
We mixed:
3/4 cup fresh brewed strong coffee
2 cups cornstarch
1/2 cup salt
then added flour to desired consistency

Make sure you stop by her post to see the jelly fish and the jam they made too!
Grab a Jump rope and jump for J!
Tell a Joke!
Just have fun!
