Make a letter E craft
Challenge the kids to make a craft that starts with the letter E. This could be an elephant craft, a coloring page that they create and draw, or something that they’ll have to cut out and work on their scissor skills with.
Preschoolers are at a critical juncture in their cognitive development. After spending their early years largely acquiring motor skills, they are now beginning to develop the ability to think symbolically. This allows them to understand that objects can represent other things, which is a fundamental step in the development of language and mathematical abilities.
Crafting activities are an excellent way to encourage this type of thinking. By working with their hands to create objects that are functionally identical to other objects, preschoolers can begin to understand that one object can stand in for another.
In addition, crafts can also help preschoolers to develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. As a result, crafting activities offer a unique opportunity to support the cognitive development of preschoolers.
Here are a few of our favorite elephant crafts:
