So, here is our first post for our ABC book! Since we were doing apple activities this week, it just made sense to start with “A” is for Apples!
I saw this cute craft at Izzie, Mac & Me and knew it was perfect for our book.
M glued the big “A” , the little “a”, and a rectangle (for the tree trunk) to a piece of blue cardstock. Then he used his markers to color the pieces. I wrote which color each should be, as he has enjoyed being able to “read” the color names in other projects. He was apparently not that thrilled about coloring this time around:He put his head down like he was bored to death, but it did get colored… barely.
Then he glued “apples” to the apple tree – these were simply red holes I punched.
Next he cut some clip art of things that begin with A out and glued them to another piece of paper: (Yes, this was a different day, different jammies.)
Here’s what our A pages look like in our book. Aa craft page:
Collage page and tracing page:
There is a dry-erase marker attached to the front inside of the book, and a piece of felt to use for an eraser.
Have a beautiful day! :)
