Swimming silently along the silvery shore, this stunning lowercase S craft is sure to cause a stir! You’ll know her by her long, slender neck. If your little one needs to learn the letter S, snatch up this super-sweet ABC Craft soon!

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 2 sheets of printer paper
  • Card stock (we used green, white, and orange)
  • S Is for Swan Craft templates
  • One googly eye
  • Pencil and marker
  • Glue stick and scissors

Instructions for Assembling Your Lowercase S Craft

  1. Print the S Is for Swan Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter S and the swan’s wings and beak onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter S and the swan’s body parts.
  4. Glue the letter S to a piece of card stock (we used green, but you can use any color you like).
  5. Tuck one wing under the topside of the bottom curve of the letter S and glue in place.
  6. Glue the second wing on top of the other wing, but slightly off-set, so both wings are visible as shown in the video below.
  7. Glue the swan’s beak to the upper end of the letter S.
  8. Use a marker to draw nostrils on the swan’s beak.
  9. Glue a googly eye just above the swan’s beak.

Jocelyn,
We also have a capital letter S craft, S is for Snake. However, with S there isn’t much differences with capital and lower case, so you could go with whichever animal pleases him most. 😉
