There are a lot of ways to teach kids the letters of the alphabet and their sounds. Give this B is for Bird Letter Craft a try for a simple tactile project that kids can help with. For younger kids, you may want to pre-cut the pieces and just let them do the gluing. Older kids will enjoy being able to trace, cut, and glue on their own.
