The letter “B” is the second letter of the alphabet. To make it fun and easy for a child to learn, try giving them some letter “B” arts and crafts projects.
I’ve put together a list of 23 letter “B” crafts for preschoolers. These craft projects will teach kids about the letter’s shape and also about the different words associated with it.
With such a fun variety of crafts, kids will surely enjoy learning about the letter “B”!
Note: As most of these letter “B” crafts require scissors and paint, I recommend the use of safety scissors and washable paint. If you don’t have safety scissors at home, a grown up should handle cutting out templates.
