We’re moving through the alphabet and sharing a set of art and craft ideas for each letter. Today we’re sharing 8 letter D crafts and art projects!
8 Letter D Crafts
D is for Dinosaur
I cut out a wobbly D and the rest of the shapes so my Two could make his own dinosaur. He loves using a glue stick and pushing down the pieces. This was his first attempt at drawing a smile. 🙂 This is based on a foam dinosaur craft from Totally Tots.
Printing with Duplos
Paper Plate Dinosaur
My Four used Do-a-Dot markers to color half of a paper plate. Then I printed the Tyrannosaurus Rex pattern from The Craft Train, cut it out, and helped him glue it together to make a dinosaur. He loved playing with it!
By the way, it may look like the dinosaur has full cheeks… it’s actually a smile. 😉
Duck Feet Prints
Duck feet with a spatula! Don’t you love it? I saw this brilliant art idea on The Preschool Experiment.
Tissue Paper Duck
I saw this simple duck craft on Glued to My Crafts and adapted it for my Two. I printed a duck pattern, and my Two ripped up white tissue paper to add to the body. He glued the beak and googly eye too.
D is for Dog
Lately I’ve been doing less of these cut and glue crafts because they’re too simple for my Four and don’t leave a lot of room for creativity. But my Two really loves this sort of thing, and understanding where to place the pieces can be a good challenge for him. Plus, this one is just too cute to resist! I love the whiskers!
I cut out the pieces freehand, but you can see the original and get a free dog pattern at Miss Maren’s Monkeys.
Be honest, now — did you think this was a rooster? This is actually a handprint dinosaur by my Four, who likes to draw bird legs ;). It’s part of an amazingly fun handprint art series from Red Ted Art. She shows you exactly how to paint your child’s hand for each craft. Much smarter than having your child put his hand in paint and try not to let certain fingers touch the paper!
D is for Dots
