This H is for Horse craft is the perfect addition to your letter of the week activities. Or, add it to your wild west, horse, or cowboy preschool themes!
I love focusing on a letter a week with preschoolers. It really helps them focus on that letter and the sound it makes. It’s a great way to incorporate a variety of themes into one overarching lesson plan.
For instance, during Hh week, you could focus on horses, home, hearts, hands, and so much more. It really brings variety to your homeschool preschool days.
I love crafting, as well. This letter of the week preschool craft (with printable templates) combines learning letters with a fun crafting session for little ones.
This horse craft is great! It’s relatively easy to put together with a little prep work from mom/teacher. It can be added to many different preschool themes throughout the year.
H is for Horse Craft
This craft is so much fun! It will go great with your Letter of the Week activities. You can also add it to your horse, cowboy, farm, and wild west preschool themes.
Kids are going to have so much fun assembling the pieces to create their horses, and these horse crafts will look great on display!
What You’ll Need
• Craft foam or construction paper
• Glue (hot glue works great with craft foam, but white glue works as well)
• Paper or Cardstock (for printing the templates)
• Template (download below)
What You’ll Do
Start by printing the Letter H and horse templates below. I prefer printing on cardstock. I find it sturdier than printer paper, but you can use printer paper if that’s what you have on hands.
Cut out the letter H template. Trace the H onto your craft foam or construction paper, and then cut it out again.
Do the same with the horse template. Print it out, cut it out, trace it, and cut it again.
You may find it best to precut the pieces for your preschoolers. I prefer to let preschoolers cut the Letter H while I cut the horse pieces for them.
Using the photos as a guide, help your preschooler assemble the horse. Glue the tail, mane, bangs, and snout on the horse’s body. Then, glue on a pair of googly eyes.
Use the black sharpie marker to draw on the details – a mouth, nostrils, and hooves.
Now, glue the horse to the letter H. Be sure to discuss the sound that H makes and help them hear it in the word “horse”.
