My daughter loves ‘The Jungle Book’ TV series. And when I told her if she wanted to make a Fox for the ‘Letter of the week – F’, she immediately said, ‘Tabaki! Yes!’ So we decided to go for it.
Things required for ‘Uppercase Letter F’ craft are: orange and white foam, pencil, black pompom ball (or if you have another color like us then paint it black), black paper, another color paper for the background, scissors and glue.
Start by drawing the letter F on the orange foam.
And cutting it out.
Cut 2 triangles from the orange foam for the ears.
And a bushy tail.
Cut out the end of the tail from the white foam. Cut an iris (bigger circle) and a pupil (smaller circle) from the white foam and black paper respectively.
Get your toddler/preschooler to paste the ears behind the top corner of the ‘F’
Flip the ‘F’ back to its correct position and paste the white and black circles on top of each other to form the eye.
Put the tail at the end of the vertical line.
Put the white tail part on the tip of the orange tail.
Finally add the nose on top right end of ‘F’.
Stick the whole thing on a color paper and your ‘F’ for ‘Fox’ is ready!
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.
