Letter R Crafts and Activities
Color a Rainbow
* Crayons in: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet
A great way for your little ones to learn the colors of the rainbow in order is to have them remember the silly name Roy G. Biv. Talk about how each letter in the name represents the colors and then have them draw a rainbow and color it using the colors.
* Leaves, or other objects in nature
Take your leaf or other object and put it under your paper. Rub your crayon across your paper using the side of the crayon. The object under the paper will show up in your crayon design.
* A white tube sock
* Buttons (optional)
* A rubber band
* Fabric markers
* Cotton ball
* Cardboard (optional)
* Wire (optional)
Draw a rabbits face on the center of the sock. If you are using buttons, glue those on for the eyes. Cut a circle out of your cardboard and put it at the bottom of your sock. This creates a stable base. Next you are going to stuff your sock rabbit so that it is full up to where the ribbing in the sock starts. Now wrap the rubber band around the area where the stuffing stops. Fold the top of your sock over the rubber band, creating a hat for your rabbit. Cut a hole on each side of your hat. Cut two rabbit’s ears out of your felt and glue them so that they stick out of the holes in the hat. Finally glue a cotton ball at the bottom for your rabbit’s tale. Wire makes great whiskers!
