This was a great addition to our 3 YO year! So simple & fun! We printed the letters off here. I got the ideas from various sites. (Google, "Z is for" for each letter to get ideas.) Here is one site.
He painted it black and the glued some bones I had cut out of white paper to make an x-ray.
Glued on a construction paper umbrella and then added drops of water with a dot marker. Yeah, there's not supposed to be water UNDER an umbrella, but really, it's preschool :)
Glued on feathers and a beak & feet I had cut from orange foam, along with a googly eye.
Googly eyes and foam ears & a tale.
The volcano is made from foam.
The quilt is made from squares of scrapbook paper.
Brown crayon, a construction paper bird, a cardboard stick nest and white paper eggs.
Pink & green paint and watermelon seeds cut from black foam.He drew brown lines for tracks and then glued the train I had cut out of construction paper.
Apple stickers from Amazon.
Painted O blue and then used shiny fish stickers. O is for Ocean.
Painted it yellow. Genius, eh?
Glued ribbons on. :)
Kisses. He used a washable stamp pad to put his lips on.
Caterpillars. (these are from ABC Animals from one of the links above.)
He actually did this at church, and I borrowed it. :)
I cut out parts of a house from construction paper and helped him glue them on. I did the flowers. Amazing, right? lol
He glued on strips of black paper and then 2 eyes to make a zebra.
This was supposed to be "ice paint". It's really called snow paint- mix together white school glue & shaving cream. I added a few drops of blue food coloring. You can't tell from the pic, but it makes a fluffy, textured paint.
Lion stickers from $1 spot in Target.
These bears are also from Animal ABCs.
Glued on foil. Simple is sometimes best!
Colored it black with marker, then added foam cut-outs of feet and beak & some googly eyes.
Easter foam stickers I had saved from his Easter eggs the year before.
