Are you busy trying to teach a toddler or preschooler their letters? If yes, then you know just how old board books and flashcards can get for them. Luckily, we’ve got a collection of craft activities to help you as you embark on this journey. When putting on your teacher hat, keep the following in mind. Kids learn best when having fun — even more, during experiences that provide an element of sensory explanation. Arts and crafts are one way to offer your child the opportunity to learn through hands-on play and work those small hand muscles, pincer grasp, and to learn complex skills like cutting paper, writing, and drawing. Today, we’re bringing you some letter H crafts to help you get started.
Here we go.

They can decorate it however they want but include a lesson on how hand starts with the letter H, and discuss what they use their hands for. They can only list activities that start with an H. For example, helping, holding hands, or hive fives. See how many they can come up with!
14. Humpty Dumpty Surgery
Kids love a good puzzle, so give them the chance to solve one on their own using the classic storybook klutz, Humpty Dumpty. Have each child cut an oval/egg shape out of white paper. Then tell them to rip their cutout into six to seven pieces. Using tape or bandaids, have your kid put Humpty Dumpty back together again by attaching those pieces to a sheet of paper.
15. Happy Faces
Each smile is unique and usually caused by happiness. Challenge your child to draw a happy face without using markers or crayons. They can use cotton balls, glitter, leaves, or whatever they can come up with. The goal is to make a unique smile. This is a great way to encourage your kid’s creative mind and put a smile on both of your faces.
