Hello everyone!
Does anyone have a list of ABC art ideas? I am compiling a list for my Chicka
Chicka Boom Boom Letter Exchange participants and I'd like to add a few more
ideas. I will be happy to share the finished list when it's complete!!!

Thanks for any help you can offer,
Karen :)

Check out the above website. If you go to the right of her page, you'll see a category called, "Now I know my ABCs" and she has many adorable ideas.
Hope this helps!:)

abc activities

there is a website called no time for flash cards (if you google it, it will lead you to the site) I just cannot remember the full name nor the website. It has cute ideas for all letters of the alphabet, I had to moditfy a bit, for it is certainly for very young kids. However, it also list books that you can use to teach and expand on a letter. I did try it for at least 10 of the letters this past year. The kinders did enjoy it and did learn the shape, the name and the sound of the letters.

C-Car Tracks
D- Dots (I use paper hole punches, but can use bingo painters)
E- Elbow Painting
F- Finger Paint
G-Glitter Glue (use as a paint and paint a pictures) or Glitter Glue Globs (put glue on and blow through a straw to get designs)
H-Hand prints
I- Ink splats
J- Jazzy Junk (use different things to paint like toothbrush, juice boxes, sponges, etc)
K- Kool-aid Paint or Key rubbings
L-Letters (cut out of magazine) or Little to Large (draw a small shape and trace around it bigger and bigger)
M-Marble Paint
N- Nature Scene
O-Orange O's (use Toilet paper rolls)
P- Pudding Paint, or Purple Potatoe Prints
Q-Q-tip Painting
R- Red Ribbon Rectangles (use ribbon and make them into rectangles)
S- Sponge Painting
T- Toothpic Triangles
U- Upside down pictures
V- Vegetable prints
W- water colors
X- X-rays (use Q-tips to make skeletons)
