H is for horses

Kaleah is so excited this week’s letter is H.  Her favorite thing in the whole world (right now anyways) are horses.

Here are some fun ways to incorperate H into your day.

  • Sing letter H Songs.
  • Eat hot foods such as hot dogs, ham and cheese, hamburgers, ham, hot chocolate, hot cakes. Enjoy  honey, hazelnut, hoagie,  or a  
    House Snack

    Give each child a graham cracker for the a house base. Next give them a half a piece of cheese (made to form a triangle) for the roof. Finally, you can provide various other items (licorice, candy pieces, raisins, dried fruits or nuts etc) to form doors, windows, et

  • Have a science day: measure their Height, discuss the concept of things being hot.

Horse Toilet Paper Roll Craft

I’ve included two different template choices (for no particular reason other than that I was having fun drawing!)

Materials:

  • toilet paper roll, 
  • a printer,  
  • something to colour with, 
  • scissors, 
  • glue,
  • paper
 

Directions:

  • Print out the template of choice
      
  • Color and cut out the template pieces. 
      
  • Glue the large rectangular piece on first to cover the tube.  Toilet paper rolls come in different sizes, so if you find the rectangle is a bit too big, just trim it down.  If you find it’s a bit too small, just cut out another small piece to fill in the gap.
      
  • Glue on the head and “arms”
      
  • Fold the tabs on the feet and the tail and glue them onto to the tp roll to give it a 3 dimensional effect
  • Spend some time talking about horses!

Now for our Letter H page…Letter H Shape Puzzle

This is a good activity to let your 2-5 year old do to build confidence in shape recognition!

What you need:

  • scissors
  • white paper, and colored construction paper
  • pen, ruler
  • glue

What to do:

  • Using your ruler (or straight edge) trace a block letter H onto your colored paper.
  • Cut out the letter H and using your ruler again trace triangles, squares and rectangles to form the shape puzzle.
  • Now place your letter H onto the white paper and trace the letter H onto it, then trace the same shape outlines onto the white paper letter H outline. (did that make sense?)
  • Now you can cut out the shapes from your colored paper and allow your child to use the shape outlines on the white paper as a guide to glue the cutout shapes onto the paper to form the letter H.

There you have it! Your letter H page. We will see you again next week to continue on with our alphabet book!

Have a Happy Day!
