Whether you’re home and looking for something to do with your kids or if you’re wanting some fun ways for your little ones to practice their alphabet, our letter of the week crafts are always fun to make! This Letter of the Week D craft is another fun addition to the collection!
D is for Doughnut in our house! It’s inspired by one my favorite children’s books, Arnie, the Doughnut. If you haven’t read it yet, you need to get a copy! You won’t be disappointed! My students always enjoyed it and my own kids love it!
Read the book, enjoy a doughnut snack, and make your own Letter D craft!
LETTER OF THE WEEK D CRAFT
One thing I love about doing alphabet crafts is that you can often make them from craft supplies you have laying around the house. You can also tie them in with books, music, snacks, and other parts of your child’s life!
Letter d crafts for pre-k were some of my favorites to make when I was teaching because I would also start with donuts as a theme! Who doesn’t like donuts?
For this craft, you’ll only need basic materials including construction paper or card stock, glue, and scissors!
LETTER D CRAFT MATERIALS
To get started making letter d activities for preschoolers, gather the following supplies:
- 1 sheet of white and brown construction paper or card stock per doughnut – CLICK TO BUY
- A few colored pieces of card stock (any colors will work!) – BUY YOURS HERE
- Elmer’s glue or glue sticks
- Letter d template, if desired
To get started you need to make a letter D out of the white paper and the brown paper.
You can either draw a letter D on each sheet or use our letter d craft template to print out a letter on the white paper (then use it as a stencil for the brown paper).
Cut each letter D out so you have one in each color.
Choose a sheet of colored paper for your background and glue the brown letter D to the paper.
Trim around the edges of the white letter D to make them look wavy. Then glue the white letter D on top of the brown letter D to make it look like the frosting on the donut.
Choose a variety of colors from your other paper and cut little white rectangles or squares to be the sprinkles for the donut. Glue them on top of the white frosting and let your letter D craft dry!
If you’re working with a younger child, this can offer some great fine motor skills practice. But if they’re too young to be using scissors, you can pre-cut all of the pieces for them and let them put together for practice and fun!
