Teaching children about letters can be lot of fun when you get a hands-on activity involved with it. Create these adorable letter bugs using lids for a fun Alphabet activity for kids.
Here’s a buggy way to have fun with letters! It’s easy to create letter bugs from reused lids and printed letters. Grab your reused lids and let’s get started!
We reused our lids from our squeezable pouches with fruits & veggies which can be found in a variety of brands.
How to Create Letter Bugs for Kids
We used pipe cleaners to attach for the antennae added some eyes to a few of our bugs.
Encourage your child to place the lids onto the lines of the letters. Discuss how letters have straight lines, curved lines and slanted lines.
It’s a great way to learn letter recognition and to build prewriting skills!
We love activities with reusable pouch lids! If you don’t have the squeezable pouch lids you can also use regular reused lids or any smaller object!
