There’s really not a ton of things that can be made, using the letter Y, that a preschooler would easily recognize but, in the end, we decided on something that was both fun and easy to make, something that is super easy to recognize.
Ultimately, we decided to go with yellow yarn and it is the perfect craft for your preschooler to make when practicing their scissor skills.
Lowercase Letter Y Alphabet Book Craft
Didn’t I tell you that this one was simple?! It really doesn’t get much easier than this.
To make this letter Y yarn craft, you’ll need:
- A sheet of white card stock
- Blue, black, and yellow construction paper (although I forgot to add the blue into the picture)
As always, the first step is going to be cutting out the various pieces that you’ll need.
From the blue construction paper, cut out the lowercase letter Y, from the yellow a circle that will fit into the middle of your letter for the yard, and from the black, cut two pieces that look like knitting needles.
Once you’ve gotten all of the pieces cut out, start assembling your craft by having your child glue their lowercase letter Y onto their sheet of card stock.
Next, have them glue their “knitting needles” onto their letter. For ours, we decided to glue the needles right onto the “v” section of the letter Y so that they would simply look like an extension of the letter itself, but have your child glue them wherever they’d like.
Finally, add your ball of yarn and grab a crayon for the details. We just drew some lines going in various directions to make the circle look like it was a ball of yarn that was all wrapped up.
When your kiddo is happy with how their yarn turned out, go ahead and grab the lowercase letter Y page from the bundle of interactive alphabet pages and add them both to your alphabet book.
