Letter of the Week- Letter R

Our letter this week was the letter R.  I saw this cute idea over at No Time for Flash Cards and knew that Hailey would love it.  So we made a Rainbow R.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper in all of the colors of the rainbow, white paper, glue and another piece of construction paper.

Cut the pieces of construction paper into strips.

Draw the R on the white paper- make sure you can see the marker through the back of the paper.  Put glue all over the R.

Glue the strips of construction paper on.  I showed Hailey how to put the first one on and then I handed her each color after that so she could put them on herself and they would be in the right order.

Cover the whole paper with the rainbow pieces of construction paper.  The turn the paper over and cut out the R.

Glue the R onto another piece of construction paper.  We used blue so it would look like the sky.
