Now I Know My ABCs ~ H is for House

It's time for some fun alphabet crafts!! We hope you enjoy these! If you are new, you can visit our ABC webpage to find links to any other letters we have done, letters (with books listed) coming up!

by Audrey Wood

Summary:Everyone is sleeping in the napping house, starting with a snoring granny who is soon joined by a dreaming child and then others until the bed is so full...and soon no one is napping!

What You'll Need:
  • White and blue foam sheet/construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil {to outline/trace letter} 
  • Fake flowers
  • Marker
  • Glue
How to make the 'H' House:
  1. Trace and cut an uppercase 'H' out of the blue foam sheet or construction paper. I used a foam sheet that was about 4" x 5" in size.
  2. Using the white foam, cut out two rectangles for windows, a larger rectangle for a door, a triangle for the roof, and a thin rectangle for a windowbox.
  3. You can add window panes to the windows by either cutting them out with really fine scissors ~ or you can draw them on with a marker. :)
  4. Glue on the roof, windows, door and windowbox.
  5. Add some flowers to your windowbox if you decide to add one.
  6. Put a doorknob on your door.
