Last week, we had so much fun creating our Letter D Dove Craft. This week, we are sticking with the bird theme and making an Letter E Eagle Craft. I find that crafts are a simple and inviting way to introduce a new letter to a child. This craft will not only help with letter recognition and letter formation but also with learning the sounds that “e” makes.
How To Make A Letter E Eagle Craft:
- Letter E and Eagle Templates
- Craft Foam
- Black Marker
- Paper or Cardstock
- Googly Eyes
To prepare for this activity, download the letter E and eagle templates (click on the button below) and print them onto paper or card stock. Next, cut the letter templates out. If you are making these with a group of children, you may want to make a few letter templates. I usually make one or two per table so the students can take turns using it.
To begin the activity, the children will trace the letter E onto a piece of craft foam and cut it out. Next, they will trace the eagle template onto craft foam and cut it out. If your students don’t have the fine motor skills or hand muscle strength to cut yet, they may need hand over hand support. We used brown craft foam for the body and the stick that the eagle is sitting on, white for the head, and yellow for the beak and talons.
After cutting out the pieces, the children will glue all of the parts of the eagle together and then glue it to the letter E.
Finally, the children will glue on the googly eyes. They will then use a black marker to add detail to the body and wings.
I hope that you and your students have fun making this Letter E Eagle Craft and that it helps them learn the fifth letter of the alphabet.
