Spooky Letter A Craft For Preschoolers: Costume Party Dress Up Play
For this craft you need:
- Letter a craft printable download (link below)
Print out the file on card stock. We also did one on regular paper but the results were better on the thicker card.
Cut out the upper case A and the lower case a, along with their dress-up parts.
Tip: Exchange the dress-up parts among alphabets just like we share things with our friends. Try different looks. Choose your child’s favorite one before you finally glue everything onto each alphabet.
(I let my son do this craft using the regular paper prints first so he had a cuter backup if things went wrong. Yes, we did this craft twice. I posted the video on insta.)
Have fun swapping dress-up parts between the alphabets if you like or just use each letter’s accompanying dress.
Glue the parts to your letter.
Your alphabets are ready for a spooky costume party.
Have fun playing. The kids will bring in their own creative game ideas to their craft.
Store the letters in a pouch or folder for future play.
