To prepare this alphabet activity, click on the button below. Then, download and print the aliens and apples. I like to print my resources on white card stock, because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too.


Next, laminate the aliens and apples so your kids can use them over and over. Then, cut all of the pieces out. Finally, tape or glue the the aliens to a paper bag or cardboard box and cut out the mouths.
