Preschool Activities: Letter of the Week {Hh}

By Tiffany Rudd
     * Heart Shaped Toast With Honey: Just pull out a heart shaped cookie cutter for this simple snack. You could also add honey butter or even make heart shaped french toast. There are some great recipes {here}.

Favorite Books:
     * Old Hat New Hat by Stan & Jan Berenstain
     * Hats, Hats, Hats by Ann Morris
     * My Hands by Aliki

     * Capital & Lowercase Hh: I love these cute letter page ideas from Rockabye Butterfly.
     * Newspaper Hats: These simple hats are always a hit. Find great instruction at Skip to my Lou.
     * Paper Bag Houses: These super cute brown paper bag houses are definitely on curriculum to do list for next year. These would be perfect for practicing location words (in, on, behind, in front, around, etc) too.
     * Handprint Art: No matter how many times they've done it, kids always love painting their hands for handprints. I found a site called Fun Handprint Art that has tons of ideas for turning keepsake handprints into art.

     * Animal Habitats: Match the animals to their homes. This is always a favorite in my house. You can find the whole post here.
     * Hat Song: Sung to the tune "If You're Happy and You Know It" Have your child help you replace {head} with other body parts and use a hat to do the actions. My students were laughing hysterically while putting the hat on their elbows, chins, and knees, etc. :)

Put the Hat on Your ________!
Put the hat on your {head}, on your {head}.
Put the hat on your {head}, on your {head}.
Put the hat on your {head}, put the hat on your {head}.
Put the hat on your {head}, on your {head}!

     * Hh - Hole Punch: Print out this simple page here, and then let your child poke holes using a push pin or toothpick. Super fun!
