LETTER OF THE WEEK O CRAFT
If you’re looking for some things to do along with this letter of the week craft, here are some ideas that the kids enjoy:
- Oranges as a snack – you can taste test different ones or practice peeling them for fine motor skills
- Read a book with a character whose name starts with O – one of my favorites is Owen by Kevin Henkes
- Go on a scavenger hunt for items that begin with the letter O
- Go on a hunt for things that are the color orange
There are a lot of fun ways to help your child explore the alphabet!
LETTER O CRAFT MATERIALS
To make this craft you’ll need orange, bright green, brown, and yellow card stock or construction paper. You’ll also need scissors, a pencil, and a glue stick.
You can either draw a letter O and cut it out or use our Letter O Craft printable. Print it on card stock and then cut it out or print it and use it as a stencil on construction paper.
- Orange, white, bright green, brown and yellow card stock or construction paper – (Buy my favorite card stock!)
- Glue stick
- Black marker
- Letter O printable template, if desired
HOW TO MAKE LETTER O CRAFT
Draw a letter O onto a sheet of orange paper and cut it out with scissors. If you don’t want to draw it, you can print our letter O template and cut it out. If you use card stock, you can print directly on it. But if you’re using construction paper, I recommend that you print the O on another sheet of paper, cut it out, and use it as a tracing template.
Once you have an orange letter O, glue it to the center of a sheet of yellow paper.
Then draw and cut out a half-circle shape from orange paper.
Cut 4 small white triangles from white paper. Make them small enough to fit into the orange half-circle. These will become an orange slice.
Glue the white triangles in the orange half-circle. You want the flat side of your triangles to be facing the curved edge of the half-circle.
Glue the orange slice to the bottom left side of the letter O with the flat edge of the slice facing in towards the center of the letter O.
Cut a thin brown rectangle shape to be a stem for the orange. Cut out a green leaf shape. Glue both to the top of the letter O so it looks like a stem and a leaf.
Trace around the orange slice with a black marker so it stands out from the letter O.
