U is for Under the Tree Alphabet Craft

I have been posting Alphabet Crafts today. If you missed our first two, you can get caught up with our K craft. U is probably one of the most difficult letters to correspond with a Christmas or Winter Theme. After some thought I went with one thing every child looks forward to at Christmas, U is for Under the tree.  

Y is for Yarn Alphabet Craft

Continuing with the Alphabet Christmas/Winter Theme I'm also sharing with you a Y is for Yarn Craft. Y is one of those tricky letters that is hard to correspond with Christmas or Winter, but ultimately I think yarn works great. It's common for people to have knitted stockings or homemade knitted hats, scarves or mittens so here is a simple way to learn about the letter Y.

K is for King Alphabet Craft

My friend over at Crafty Morning has been working on a Christmas/Winter themed Alphabet series and I decided to do a couple of the letters in the alphabet to go along with her series. Some of the letters are really tricky for a Christmas or Winter theme so hopefully these ideas can help you with some of those difficult letters. If you have a preschooler, these letter crafts are a great way to help them learn their alphabet! I'll be breaking my three letters up into different posts and first I'm sharing our K is for King Alphabet Craft.
