Ff template to print and color
One activity you might want to consider is to make a feather painted frame
for this template (or just glue feathers all around the outside):
- Print the template and color in the F f. Point out to the child which is
the capital F and which is the lowercase.
- Take a large feather (you can buy these at the craft store, pluck them off
a feather duster or pick them up from outside). If you've found one outside,
an adult should soak it in a 1 pt bleach to 10 pt water solution for 30
minutes before using to get rid of any pests -- rinse and let dry
- Dip the feather into tempra paint and drag lightly over the surface of a
piece of construction paper (contrasting color). It will make a marble effect
if done correctly.
- ALTERNATIVE: Marbling may be too difficult for some young children... in
this case, just dip the whole feather in paint, press it down once on a piece
of paper towel or newspaper to blot it and then press it down on the
construction paper (like a stamp).
- You can use more than one color of paint for either of these techniques.
- Remember to color in your letters. Throughout the alphabet lessons, use a
variety of mediums for coloring the letters (crayons, pencil crayons, markers,
pens, pastels water color paints, tempra paints, finger paints, etc).
- Fold the construction paper in half and cut a rectangle out of it so
you're left with a 1 or 2 inch frame
- Cut the Ff letters out of the template and glue them onto the
Whenever I do these projects with Kaitlyn, I get to draw pictures of words
that start with the letter and then she gets to color them. Don't stress
about your drawing skills... the kids will love watching you draw! Letter
F words I drew were four, flower, finger, fire and fish.
