Letter "Ll" Recognition Craft Projects & Activities
We spend one week reinforcing each letter with crafts and activities after it is introduced.
"Ll" is for Ladybug Hats
Give children a red oval to cut out. Add head shape, dots, and wiggle eyes. Glue or staple onto a hat band.
Paper Plate Ladybug
Paint a paper plate red. When dry fingerpaint black spots. For the older kids I stapled a black sheet of construction paper with added head and legs. I drew on a head with a black marker for the little ones who are still in the ripping up projects stage as you can see in the picture.
"Ll" is for Lion
Glue curled strips of construction paper around a paper plate with the eyes and mouth cut out as shown.Glue a lion face to the middle.
"Ll" is for lace.
Cut and glue lace to the letter.
Other ideas for collaging with letter Ll,
Collect interesting leaves and use them to make leaf rubbings.
Use stickers or cut out pictures of things in magazines that start with L.

Carl's Corner Letter L - This comes with a sheet to color, cut, and paste to the letter.
Letter L & Ladybug Sponge Painting
The ladybug was made with construction paper. Give children a red oval to cut out and head shape, dots and wiggle eyes to glue on. Glue to the page and sponge paint L's. Invest in some Alphabet and misc. sponges for crafts like this. They are about $2 or $3 per bag at Walmart. Also available from school supply stores. We use ours to make a page like this for every letter we are learning from September through May. Parents are encouraged to take them home and post them where the child can see and practice every day. When we finish the entire alphabet they can make them into a book or put them into a binder.
Group Time Activity
Listening For L's
Show children how to make a capital L with their thumb an forefinger. Explain that you will say several words, some that begin with the letter l and some that do not. Tell them to listen very carefully. When they hear a word that begins with the l sound, have them make an l with their hands and hold them up. Use L words such as lion, lake, lizard, lamb, log, lemon, ladder, leak, love, like, listen, and look.
