Easy children’s crafts with the letter B

Easy children’s crafts with the letter B

Work with your preschoolers to learn the alphabet! Why not try out these EASY children's crafts with the letter B? We made a bear and a bumble bee!

The boys were busy last week making crafts with the letter B.  It doesn’t seem long ago since we did our letter A, I can’t believe it has been a month already!

We had a few really lovely days last week, where the sun was shining!  We managed to get to the park two days in a row.  However, Friday saw rain, rain and more rain.  So we took advantage of this and baked cakes (which I didn’t get to eat due to No Sugar February!) and did some fun crafts.  We somehow managed to completely wear D out, when I was making dinner, he fell asleep on the couch.  Any parents out there will know what I mean when I say that is my worst nightmare.  When I eventually managed to wake him up, he was 10 / 10 on the grumpy factor!

Anyway, back to our craft afternoon. I let the boys pick an animal to make with the letter B, they chose a bear and a bumble bee.  Good picks and both make use of the googly eyes, which causes so much excitement in our house for some reason!  The boys are googly eyes obsessed,  I blame Mr Maker!

So we have two different crafts for you today on the blog, and I am going to show you how we did it and what the outcome was.

Easy Children's Crafts With The Letter B - Bumble Bee and Bear

Crafts with the letter B!  B = Bear

So first up is daddy bear, as named by D!

What you need:

  • Coloured card
  • Black Pen
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Something to draw a circle – or freestyle it if you are braver than me!
  • glue

First cut a large letter B out of brown card.  Then cut out three circles for the ears and mouth.  Then some shapes for the hands and feet.

Once everything is cut out, glue them into place.  Then stick the all important googly eyes into place and decorate as required.  It really is as easy as that.  It doesn’t take long to do and the kids can help with the majority of the task (my two needed a little help with the cutting out of the letter.)

Crafts with the letter B!  B = Bumble Bee

  • Coloured card
  • Black Pen
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • yellow pom poms
  • glue

Once again cut a large letter B out of yellow card. Cut out wings with yellow and black card.  Cut out antennae and a small sting with black card.

Glue all the all wings, antennae and sting into place.  Then, glue the googly eyes and yellow poms poms into place. Then get the black pen to colour in the stripes.

Out of the two I really loved the bumble bee – we were really chuffed with how that turned out!  Although the bear looks pretty cool as well.

When we were doing the task, as with the letter A task, we talked about the letter B.  D was great saying all the different things that started with the letter, ball, bee, banana….

When L was asked what starts with the letter B, he said A – so think he needed a bit more guidance.  Once I said B is for ball, he then went onto name the usual suspects that start with B.

Next on the list is the letter C, the boys are both adamant that this should have something to do with cats.  So I need to get my thinking cap on !

    This is great. I love quite simple but hugely effective crafts. And Little Miss H is obsessed with the alphabet at the moment. So I definitely need to do these crafts with her. Hugs Lucy xxxx

    I wish I would have known you when my kids were little, although if you think about it you were little then too. LOL You and the boys have so much fun, whether you are playing or learning it’s all fun. These little guys are so lucky and I can see them passing down all the fun to their kids!

    Such a fun and brilliant way to help the ABCs sink in! We are also slightly googly eye obsessed. You can make a monster out of literally anything with a googly eye or two! Thanks for sharing with #DreamTeam x

    They’re both super cute and such a fun way to learn the alphabet. Are you going to make a big collage of all the letters when you’re done Yvonne?

Don't be shy, leave me a comment.....
