Play to Learn ~ ABC Crafts

Welcome to this week’s Play To Learn where I’m sharing some of our fun letter crafts that we make each week. As we go through the alphabet we are creating these cute little foam crafts to put in an Alphabet Binder. Later we can flip through the binder and review our sounds and letters.

A is for Apple

This year as you can see we are doing lowercase letters, last year we did uppercase letters. I get most of my ideas from the wonderful ladies at Totally Tots, but I am trying to change them to match our curriculum theme as well. Here are some of our samples thus far…

B is for Butterfly


C is for Caterpillar


E is for Elephant


F is for Fish


These alphabet crafts are super easy to pull together! All you need is a pack of colored foam sheets, a bag of googly eyes, a little creativity and you’re all set! To see more alphabet foam crafts visit Totally Tots!

Those are just some ideas to make the alphabet fun! If you have more ideas to share, or would like to be included in future “Play To Learn” posts, please email me at homeschoolerconfessions {at} gmail {dot} com, we’d love to hear from you!



  1. B LOVED making the foam letters! We didn't use them as a part of a letter a week curriculum or anything. I gathered all of the supplies for each letter and put them in labeled bags so I could just pull one out whenever we felt like it. However, B ended up asking for them so often we finished the whole alphabet in a week. He played with the letters (and still does) for a long time!

  2. These are great! I saw the "a" on Little Page Turners too and we already made that one. I love the "e" elephant. We'll definitely be doing that one.

  3. What a fun set of letters!Creative use; you always have such good ideas to share.
