Monsters have kinda taken over here at No Time For Flash Cards, first Saturday’s awesome book post by Carrie Anne now this monster craft ! I can’t take credit for this though, I again asked my son what letter he wanted to do and after shooting down his P for .. well let’s just say he is potty training and I am sure you can guess. We settled on m for monster! Scroll down for more fun alphabet activities !

  1. Gather your materials. You will need 2 pieces of construction paper , some colored foam ( or more paper would be a ok), some fun paints ( we busted out the art daubers because they dry fast), scissors, glue and a marker.Craft Supplies
  2. Start by writing a lowercase m on one piece of construction paper.2October 002
  3. Have your child color / paint the m. Do a dot art
  4. While they do that cut  the paper or foam into horns, teeth and eyes. 2October 004
  5. I made the eyes because nap time was already overdue when we realized we needed to do our letter of the week, and I didn’t want to push the specifics. Normally I would have had my son do this with help instead of doing it for him. Always adjust activities to your child’s specific needs/ abilities.2October 005

Letter of the Week  Stories

This is a fun activity for older preschoolers, I had fun doing this with my PreK class a few years ago! What you do is write a short story leaving blanks for your child to fill in with words starting with the letter of the week. The results will make both of you giggle, and your child will be learning too!

Here is an example :

Yesterday I went walking down the street and I found a _________ , I couldn’t believe it! My mom said I couldn’t keep it . Instead she let me go to the store and buy a _________ but there were none left! The man at the store sold me a ________ instead! I thought it smelled funny , so I went home and on the way home I found three ______. what a funny day!

    These are all super fantastic ideas! I love the “starts-with” toy box – it’d be perfect for my younger tot and I know my pre-schooler would giggle up a storm with the mad libs style story! This week is our first week ever for tot school and these will definitely be making their way into our plans!

    Thank you so much for creating such a fantastic blog! I found out about it just a few months ago and have used many, many of your ideas and passed on your site to several other friends. I have wanted to do fun learning activities with my son but just haven’t known where to start so your blog has been a thrill to find! I do have one question, could you tell me where you pick up art daubers? I have looked several places without any luck and exhausted my brain for where else I can turn? Thanks Again!

      Also thank you so much for your kind words- on days where I just want to watch on demand videos after a late night with my son it makes all the difference!
