This week I’m sharing a collection of letter H activities for 2-year-olds.
I’m teaching my two-year-old the letters of the alphabet in a fun Letter of the Week format. We spend about 10-20 minutes daily. Take a peek at our week!
I like this craft because there’s a lot for the child to do. I printed a block letter H (get yours here) on construction paper and cut it out. Then I prepared the pieces and helped my Two glue them down. She enjoyed adding her scribbles to the drawing, and I wrote the letter H behind the door.
We named the letter as she opened and shut the door.
My Two has been a huge fan of my little letter books of songs and rhymes ever since I printed the whole set and gave them to her for Christmas. Get your own Little Letter H book for free in this post.
Together we fan folded the arms and legs of Humpty Dumpty (I did most of that), and my Two added eyes and a mouth. She also added a few details to the brick wall before we glued it together. After singing the rhyme a few times (to the tune of the song on this CD), Humpty was proudly displayed on the wall of Daddy’s office.
As we created this project, her older brother (4 1/2) made his own Humpty Dumpty, complete with bow tie.
You can see our inspiration for this craft at Rainbows within Reach.
Here’s another activity that both kids enjoyed – fizzing hearts! Anything with baking soda and vinegar is a hit at our house. Combine it with an eye dropper and you’ve got a surefire winner. Learn how to make these at Powerful Mothering.
My oldest three kids held hula hoops so that my Two could run through them. This was a fun way to squeeze in some gross motor activity.
This was our fine motor activity. I cut out heart shapes from play dough using a cookie cutter. Then my Two matched our colored buttons to each heart. While she can only name pink and black correctly, she is able to match like colors. I expect she’ll know all her colors in a few months.
As the week went on, she was remembering the shape of letter H. She enjoyed dotting the capital H’s in this freebie from Learning the Alphabet.
Tissue paper and contact paper crafts for the window are one of my favorites. My Four’s is on the left, and my Two’s is on the right. These adorned our window for a long time!
See our inspiration at Kids’ Craft Room.
These picture cards reinforce the letter’s sound and are a great vocabulary builder for young learners. (Get them free in the download at the end of this post.)
Also in the download, you’ll get a set of capital and lowercase Letter H letters. Mix them up with letters from previous sets for a fun letter sort.
If you’re looking for even more letter H activities, browse the lesson plans and Appendix of our Letter of the Week ebook. I page through my printed copy several times a week when I need new ideas and inspiration.
