I love when I can incorporate a creative process-based activity into our letter crafts. We combined the Q-tip painting idea from Kiboomu and the Q-tip gluing idea from Mrs. Lee’s Kindergarten to create this Letter Q craft for our alphabet book.
We started by painting with Q-tips. We spent almost the whole morning painting and experimenting. All three of the kids (Ages 2, 3, and 4) created many pictures.
I loved to see them exploring different ways to paint with the Q-tips. They made lines and dots at first. Then they started making swirls and trying to see what would happen if they put the Q-tip on its side and rolled it. Here Lovey is trying to see if she can paint with two Q-tips.
After the paintings were dry, the two oldest kids chose one painting that they wanted to use for their letter Q craft. These were the two chosen paintings, and the others were proudly displayed throughout the week.
Then we glued Q-tips to a cutout of the letter Q.
Our completed crafts are now hanging on our alphabet wall. We use them to review the letters, and then we will add them to our books in a few weeks.
