Kids Crafts - Animal Alphabet

I started making Junior an 'animal alphabet' a while back, but as he showed no interest in his letters whatsoever, it was all numbers, numbers, and maths, he's suddenly asking "what does that say?" and "what letter's that?" all the time.

Time to finish the alphabet!

I found the templates here, a great site with all sorts of free printables and craft ideas for kids and good for some home education resources too.  Lovely, with colourful animals or birds on one side, and with the upper and lower case letters, plus the name of the animal on the other.

The finished results are great not only for teaching the alphabet, but also for role play as well.  They're also a great way to use up those coffee-stirring sticks they hand out at the likes of McDonalds!!  Older children can join in with this craft helping with the colouring in and cutting out/sticking of the animal shapes :)

Great fun!
