Your preschooler will ooh and ahh over this lowercase letter O craft! From his oversized nose to his majestic horns, this massive ox is eagerly waiting to be brought to life by your child. And he’s happy to help teach the letter O at the same time!
Here’s What You’ll Need
2 sheets of printer paper
Card stock (we used orange, brown, dark brown, tan, and white)
Cut out the templates and trace the letter O and the ox hair, face, beard, and horns onto card stock.
Cut out the letter O and ox pieces.
Glue the ox’s beard to a piece of card stock (we used orange, but you can use any color you like).
Glue the letter O on top of the beard.
Attach the hair at the top of the letter O.
Glue the face in the center of the letter O.
Affix the horns on the sides of the ox’s head.
Position two googly eyes near the base of the ox’s horns.
Use a marker to add the ox’s nostrils and mouth.
