Letter K Preschool Activity: Go Fly a Kite

10 Minute Preschool Lesson: Letter K

We have a lot of books in our house, but I still had a hard time finding books that focus on the letter “K”. I supplemented with a cute Letter K Rhyming book from The Measured Mom. The kids love that they each get their own special book. I also found the corresponding rhymes/songs on YouTube and they followed along in their books. It was a big hit. 

After some practice with recognizing and hearing the letter K, it was time for our craft. Last fall, I purchased two inexpensive kites on clearance from Target. We only got to fly them a few times because it was a cold fall, but the kids both loved it. Reminding them of that fun activity and having them make their own kite was a good distraction from the cold weather. My daughter started off very excited to go fly her kite, but I crushed her high hopes when I explained that these kites weren’t for flying. Poor thing!

I gave each of the kids the template of the kite & bows on a piece of white cardstock. I set out a variety of craft supplies for them to decorate with- markers, watercolors, glitter glue, etc. They had a great time decorating, and we made a point to discuss all the words we could think of that started with the letter K.

After they were done decorating, the adults cut them out. Originally, I was going to slice two lines in each of the bows and thread the ribbon through, but I thought better of that and decided to simply use my hot glue gun to attach the ribbon and bows. I used some cute pink glitter ribbon leftover from another project, and the girls loved that sparkly touch.

This is truly a 10 Minute Activity that took minimal prep, but resulted in great conversations and learning opportunities for our kids.
