All of our letter crafts are somewhat artsy and crafty, but this one involves paint which for both of my kids is an instant win. It involves a really cool painting method because we’re not using paint brushes, instead we are using a crumpled up piece of tinfoil. I love the texture that this gives to our moon making our painting seem a little more lifelike and realistic.

This alphabet craft will work on identifying the letter M and the sound that it makes.

Teacher Tip

While we love our jumping heroes, the best way to learn that J is for jump is to jump. Try starting this activity with jumping on the floor a few times and finish it off with a few more jumps. This will really reinforce the idea that J is for jumping!
