Rumor has it there’s a lowercase R craft ready to bounce its way into your home and into your child’s heart. With a twitch of its little nose and a wiggle of its long ears, the adorable rabbit in this ABC Craft is ready to help teach your child the letter R!

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 2 sheets of printer paper
  • Card stock (we used yellow, tan, pink, and white)
  • R Is for Rabbit Craft templates
  • One googly eye
  • Pencil, glue stick, and scissors

Instructions for Assembling Your Lowercase R Craft

  1. Print the R Is for Rabbit Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter R and the rabbit’s ears, nose, and tail onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter R and the rabbit pieces.
  4. Glue the letter R to a piece of card stock (we used yellow, but you can use any color you like).
  5. Attach the inner ears to the ear pieces.
  6. Tuck the ears under the upper edge of the letter R and glue in place.
  7. Tuck the tail under the lower edge of the letter R and glue in place.
  8. Glue the nose to the letter R as shown in the video below.
  9. Position a googly eye near the upper edge of the letter R between the ears and the nose.

These crafts are so cute! I might try them with my 4 year old who is more hands on with his learning than my 5 year old is.

Andrea

says:

My son it a bit old for this, but I might just do the M and W because he always gets them mixed up, maybe it will help it stick!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

We have had a few moms tell us that these crafts have helped their children with letter confusion, Andrea, so it is worth a try. Also, check out our blog post on How to Solve Letter Reversals. It focuses mostly on the most commonly confused letters, b and d, but the tips can apply to any letter (or even number) confusion.

You can write m on a line and point out how it is closed in on the bottom. Our mouths are closed when we say the /m/ sound. Then write a w next to it and show that it is open on top. Our mouths are open when we make the /w/ sound.

Let me know if you need further ideas for helping your son with these letters.

caryn

says:

love this idea for my dyslexic son. We need more lower case letter examples! d, b, p, q, s, z, g, j…. and how about numbers! 3, 4, 5, 7, 9

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

We don’t have number crafts, Caryn, but we do have letter crafts for b, d, g, j, p and q, with s coming out next Wednesday and continuing through the alphabet once a week until the end. You can find the links to all the lowercase letter crafts here.
