Letter K Arts and Crafts

Cut out the shape of a kangaroo, let the kids color it. Put a pocket/pouch on the tummy and put the letter K in there. Make a face on it.

Cut out a diamond shape and some yarn for the tail. Turn on the music and let the kids “dance” with their kites.

Make everyone a crown, let them decorate it with stickers or jewels cut out of construction paper. Have them talk about what they’d do if they were king for a day.

Put lipstick on everyone, even the boys, and have them KISS the letter K. Have them pucker up and make different shaped kiss prints on paper.

Key Chain
Cut several key shapes out of posterboard. On each shape glue a small picture or a sticker of something whose name begins with K. Print the letter K on the shape also. Punch a hole in the top of each key shape and fasten the shapes together with a key chain. Give the keys to the children and let them take turns naming the letters and pictures on them.

K is for kitchen
Have children glue cutouts of a stove/oven and refrigerator on a piece of paper. Make the cutouts have an overlay so that the oven door and fridge door can open. Cut out pictures from magazines of food items to glue on the inside……or have the children draw the items.


Letter K Games and Activities

Ask the parents to send in all the old keys they have. Let the kids trace them and play with them.

Talk about what this means.

Learn to tie a knot.

Fly a Kite
Purchase an inexpensive kite. Take the children outside to fly the kite on a windy day. Let them take turns. Have them answer questions such as what happens when you let out some string, when you pull in some string? what happens when the wind stops blowing?

Have everyone practice their kicks…not on each other though 🙂 If any of the children are tae kwon do students, let them exhibit some of their special kicks.

K Balance
Have children try making their body into the shape of the letter K by standing with one leg out and one arm out. Good for practice of balance. Then have children lay down and form the letter K.

K is for kittens
The Three Little Kittens
They lost their mittens
And they began to cry……….
Act out this nursery rhyme story using real mittens.

Show pictures (can find them in National Geographic and the like) of a Koala bear, and talk about what life is like for them, what they eat, where they live, etc.


Letter K Recipes and Snacks

Kite cookies
Using any sugar cookie recipe, cut the cookies in a diamond shape and bake. After the cookies cool, use pull and peel licorice for strings and let the kids decorate their cookies with different colored frosting.

Be sure to remove seeds before giving to small children. Not only are they a choking hazard, but they are a little on the tart side, sometimes too much for young taste buds!


Letter K Songs, Poems and Finger Plays

I Like Kites
(sung to: Three Blind Mice)
I like kites, I like kites
They fly high,they fly high.
The keep on spinning round and round,
Sometimes they even touch the ground,
They fly through the air without a sound.
Oh, I like kites.

Oh, I’m a Kangaroo
(sung to Farmer in the Dell)
Oh, I’m a kangaroo,
I live down at the zoo.
I like to jump around a lot.
How About you?

Oh, I’m a kangaroo,
I live down at the zoo.
I carry a baby in my pouch.
How about you?
