Hey there! I am quite excited about the new preschool series I am starting up. My sweet little girl is anxious to be learning along with her older siblings. She always is asking for more school! Last week I started the series with some Preschool Letter A Activities and the first set of my printables. Today I have the preschool Letter B activities ready to go. This post includes a Letter B snack, Letter B books, a letter B craft, and a big printable Letter B activity pack with 17 pages of letter B activities for preschoolers. Come back weekly for each new letter!
The Printable Letter B Preschool Activity Pack includes cutting pages, letter puzzles, circle the letter B, writing/letter tracing pages, B dot pages, B mazes, and more! It includes activities for upper and lower case letter B.
Letter B Snack:
We like to keep our snacks healthier around here. Our Letter B snack are Banana Berry Boats. You may have had these with chocolate chips and marshmallows, but this one is made with almond butter, berries, and granola. It is amazingly delicious, too!
Slice a banana down the center and drizzle some almond butter in the center (melted peanut butter would be great, too). If you have nut allergies, you could even do it with sunflower butter. Then fill with some little berries like blueberries and raspberries. Sprinkle some granola on top and to sweeten it a bit a tiny drizzle of honey makes it perfect! This is a messy snack, so some forks may be required. And for little ones, you should probably give them each a half of a banana. We actually had this for breakfast one morning and it was a hit!
Butterfly Letter B Craft:
This is a simple and fun butterfly craft made from the letter B. We used one of the templates in the printable packet for the outline of our B then traced it onto black construction paper and glued it onto a white piece of paper with glue sticks. Then the center wings are filled with pieces of colored tissue paper.
A big important part of the preschool experience is story time! We love books around here and I wanted to share some of our favorite books that go well with a letter Be preschool theme.
