Last week we introduced our Alphabet Animal Crafts series here on Rainy Day Mum with our a is for ant craft for toddlers. This week we are moving forward with the next letter in the alphabet and b is for bird.
Each week with our Letter Animal Crafts we are focusing on creating an Alphabet page with your toddler that you can put together to form a book for you and them to use. We are focusing on words that make the letter sound that they will learn first as they learn to read e.g. a as in ant, b as in bird etc…

How you make letter b animal alphabet craft with toddlers
- On a large piece of construction paper draw an outline of a letter b.
- With coloured contact paper draw a b and cut out.
- Hand over the glue stick and let your toddler glue the letter b and place inside the b on their Letter of the Week “B”.
- Squeeze the white school glue (PVA) along the upright of the letter b and attach feathers to it to make the plumes of the bird.
- With some yellow or orange construction paper cut out a diamond shape and fold in half for a beak for your toddler to attach to the bird.
- Once the beak is in place add in a googly eye and leave to dry.
With each page that we make for our Animal Letter Crafts ,I write the letter in upper and lower case at the top of the page and then the animal name at the bottom. The letters are to help your toddler to recognise that b is for bird and the word so that like as you read books with them they learn that words represent the things that they see around them and the words that they say.
