Yes! And if your child doesn’t know what zucchini is, you could make zucchini muffins to go with the craft.

I love the idea for these, and they look so cute, but so much prep for the parent! Any tricks or hints for making them easy? Or should I just convince my 12-year-old to do the prep work as her craft? :)

Sarah,
We tried to make these as easy for parent as they are fun for child. I think some moms have found the prep work make easier by prepping a bunch, or maybe even the entire alphabet, at one setting. If you sit down with a movie and all the materials, you should be able to prep all 26 letters in no time.

Sarah M.

says:

That’s a great idea! I never thought of that! I get in a zone with prepping my AAR games (I turn them into reusable file folder games) and could do the same with this.

BTW, older siblings love to do this sort of thing with little ones! They love to do AAR games, too.

My daughter loves the ABC crafts!! Thank you!!

Such a cute idea! We will probably make zucchini bread too as part of our Z day!

Kristen

says:

I think this will be a good activity for my 4 yro while my 6 yro works on level 1 AAR!
