Learning should always be fun for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarteners, and arts and crafts activities help children develop creativity and retain new concepts they were taught.
For all the fun and fantastic kids who are learning the 6th letter of the alphabet, here are 18 uppercase and lowercase letter “F” crafts, including crafts of things that begin with the letter “F.”
Note: As most of these letter “F” crafts require the use of scissors and paint, I recommend the use of safety scissors and Tempera paint for the safety of young children. Or, a grown-up can cut out the necessary templates!

19. Fountain Craft
Let’s not leave the older kids who want a more challenging craft out of the fun. Jacky Sanchez teaches how to make an easy-to-do fountain craft kids can proudly display on their desk or shelf.
Despite requiring supervision from a grown-up (handling the glue gun and wire), there are only a few other materials kids will need: a glue gun, rocks, a sea shell, craft wire, and wire clippers.
I recommend this low temperature glue gun for kids who enjoy a little more independence.
