Preschool Activities: Letter of the Week {Ff}

By Tiffany Rudd
Snack Ideas:
      * Fruit Faces: I found the idea for these fruit faces here. Both Brooklyn and Anniston love these and Brooklyn loves to help make them. Since kids eat fun food so much quicker, I've started including vegetable faces with lunch too. Even they have been a hit.
Favorite Books:
      * The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister - This is one of my favorite books to read aloud to my kids and my preschoolers. It is such a cute story that also teaches an important lesson on friendship. With my preschool class we usually color or paint a rainbow fish like this one and add glitter paint. I just saw the idea for this one made out an old CD on pinterest and I think I'll have to try this one next year. Super cute.
      * The Foot Book by Dr Seuss
Crafts:
      * Paper Plate Frogs - All you need for this fun craft is a paper plate, some markers or paint (unless you happen to have a green paper plate), a little construction paper and a red party blower. First cut a hole big enough for the blower in the middle of the plate. Then just have your preschooler paint or color one side of the plate green and the other red. Add pop-up construction paper eyes and the red party blower and you have a super cute and fun frog.
      * Footy Fish - I just saw this super cute idea over at Happy Day Preschool. Just a simple footprint turned into a fun and cute fish.
      * I also love this Feather Cover Letter F Craft. If you don't have any, you can buy cheap feathers at Oriental Trading. There are so many fun educational activities with feathers, one of these days I'll have to do a separate post.
Activities:
      * Fish Pond - Deb posted this fun activity last summer. It is always a favorite and it a great way to review shapes, colors and numbers. You can also print out these alphabet fish to review the letters and their sounds. Click on the photo below to read the whole post.
Printables:
