For the uppercase letter 'D', we made the Duck since it's my daughter's favorite bath time toy!

For the uppercase letter ‘D’ in the ‘Letter of the Week – D’, we made my daughter’s favorite bath time toy, the Duck!

Things required for 'Uppercase letter D craft' are: Orange and yellow foam (you may also use normal papers of the same colors), a coloured A4 paper for background, pencil, scissors, glue and goggly eye.

Then draw and cut from the orange foam - 2 stars and 1 heart. And from the yellow foam - 1 oval and a wing. The whole idea behind making the Duck's body parts as shapes is to revise shapes with your duckling during the activity.

Glue the wing on the middle of the straight line, while the heart should take place of the beak. At every step speak to your child about the shapes and their colors.

Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing. Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If your children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be performed by an adult.
