We’ve been moving right along with our A to Zoo Animals theme and today we’re learning all about camels with this fun, tactile letter C is for Camel Zoo Craft. 

Camel begins with the letter C.
Camels store food (fat) in humps on their backs.
Camels have either one or two humps. 

Remember this is our second time through with this theme and if you’re interested in what we did the first time, you can check it out here.

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.

Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.

What you’ll need

  • Paper
  • Sand
  • Glue
  • Picture Books

Here’s how to do it

Discuss

  • Do you have the letter C in your name? 

Make

  • Give each child a letter C cut out of paper.
  • Create designs with glue then sprinkle on the sand. Shake off the sand. 

Play

  • Invite children to look through picture books and search for the letter C. Whenever they find one, trace over the sandy letter C. 

Observe

  • Did the child follow the sequence of glue – sprinkle sand – shake off sand?

This one was so quick & easy. We literally used a cut-out letter C, glue, and sand to make a tactile letter. The little guy made designs with the glue and then sprinkled on the sand.

Like I said, it was lots of fun and easy enough that both you and your little kids will appreciate it! 

We got the letter C with our preschool curriculum kit, but it would be so easy to cut out of paper on your own. Or for that matter, if you have a cutting machine, you could use that too.

So the little guy and I decided that he does not have a letter C in his name, but he does have a letter E. 

He also told me all about the designs that he was making. Everything from straight and curvy lines to circles and triangles. You could totally encourage your little kids to make the letter C with the glue as well!

I asked him what camel started with and he yelled, “C for camel!” Of course the little guy told his daddy too when he came to see what we were up to. 

That’s one thing that I can always count on. He’s all about sharing anything and everything that he’s learning.

And you know what? I’m loving how confident he’s becoming. It’s crazy to think about how much the little guy has learned in the last few years and especially since the first time we did this theme when he was barely two and just starting to talk.
