Today we’re sharing 9 letter P crafts to create with your preschooler or kindergartner!
Letter P Crafts
Painting with vegetables is always fun! We had a huge pepper crop in our garden this year, so we grabbed a few that had seen better days, split them down the middle, cleared out the seeds, and made pepper prints.
My Four saw this adorable porcupine project from Preschool Playbook on my Letter P Pinterest board. He wanted to do it all by himself. So he cut the body, decorated with a marker and googly eye, and went to town with fork prints to make the quills. This is one of my favorites. 😉
Pig Shape Craft
I don’t do a lot of these types of craft with my Four; they’re so simple and don’t teach him much. But my Two loves them! I cut out the pieces for this pig craft and helped him apply glue in the right places. He patted everything down and added the dots for eyes. Cute. 🙂
This was a fun after school craft that all my big kids enjoyed. They did all the cutting and designing themselves. My Four is quite creative, as you can see. 😉 Maybe it’s a football player pumpkin? We saw these toothy pumpkins on Cindy DeRosier: My Creative Life.

Paper Plate Pigs
Even though this is more of a structured craft, the kids still had a chance to be creative and do things their own way. I cut out the pieces. They painted, glued, and decorated. My Four decided his pig needed feet. We saw these paper plate pigs at Teach Preschool. I loved their special tip that let us complete the entire pig face without having to let the paint dry first!
Okay, I didn’t actually introduce the concept of “pointillism” to my two-year-old, but go for it if your little one will listen! I saw an idea for paint swatch pointillism at Lalymom and decided to do an easier version using cardstock with my Two. I cut big circles with my small circle punch (love that thing!), and he glued them onto a pumpkin pattern.
P is for Penguin
