To help Cakey and Doodles learn the letter H we made Letter H is for House and Horse craft. I really like these kinds of crafts because they help both girls not only learn the letter and something that starts with that letter but the craft allows them to work on learning to use glue neatly. Neatly being the key word. While Cakey is able to use glue by herself she is not always very neat and Doodles is still learning.
The first time Cakey and I did these crafts was in 2014. We are now on our second time going through them (Doodles is on her first time). You can see in the photos at the end a comparison of Cakey’s first time and her second and also Doodles first time. I am hoping to add additional photos when we do our Letter H is for House and Horse craft again next year.
The first time we made this craft I free handed the additional pieces and cut them out from scrap construction paper. This time I created the images and printed them out. You can find the printables for free here Letter H House Horse via Dropbox. In this file you will find a large capital H, a lowercase h, and 1 page with a triangle for the roof, a page with a square for the door, and a page with the horse head.
While the girls were working on their letter “H” crafts, I read The Little House from our Tot School Letter H Books list.
Here’s how we did our Letter H is for House and Horse Craft:
Capital H House
- Large capital letter H from page 2 of the Letter H House Horse file
- Construction paper
- Pages 4 & 5 print out in the Letter H House Horse file
- Print the large capital H on any color construction paper.
- Cut out the capital H.
- Print out page 4 on any color construction paper and cut out the roof.
- Print out page 5 on any construction paper and cut out the door.
- With your help, have your child glue the H to a sheet of construction paper.
- Glue the roof and door pieces to the Letter H.
Lowercase h horse
- Large lower case letter h from page 3 of the Letter H House Horse file
- Construction paper
- Pages 6 print out in the Letter H House Horse file
- Yarn in color of choice
- Print the large lower case h on brown, black, white, or grey construction paper.
- Cut out the lowercase h.
- Print out page 6 on the same color construction paper and cut out the head.
- With your help, have your child glue the h to a sheet of construction paper.
- Glue the head piece on.
- Cut yarn into three sizes: about 1 inch, 2 inches, and 4 inches with 4-5 of each length.
- Glue on the 1 inch yarn pieces to the top of the horse’s head and the 2 inch pieces to the back of the horse’s head.
- Glue the 4 inch pieces to the back of the h.
I did not include pieces for the horse’s hooves but we cut ours out of scrap black construction paper.
