Materials Needed: cardstock paper, paper plate, scissors, glue, watercolors

Check out this awesome Y is for Yak Craft for Preschool! First, print your yak craft cutouts onto cardstock paper. Print your cutouts in color or in black & white. I thought watercolors worked great for filling in my paper plate. You can also sponge paint, fork paint, use markers, or use crayons.

Cut out your craft pieces and glue them to the paper plate. I gave my yak pink cheeks with a pink Dot Dot marker. Be sure to give your yak a name and hang your fun craft somewhere that needs a bit of extra cheer!

Letter Y Activities for Pre-K

Use a Dot Dot marker to dot your letter Y. Engage with a touch of social emotional learning by talking about the phrase ”yes to learning”. What does it feel like to learn something new? It is scary to try a new thing or go to a new place? Another way to use this sheet is to have your little ones place one fruit loop onto each gray dot. Laminate your printable to keep it long lasting!

The Alphabet Handprint Book can be a great end of the year gift for your little ones and their parents. Take a look at “Y is for Yo-yo”. Use yellow paint for the handprint, green and purple construction paper for the yo-yo, and a gold marker for the swirl. Be sure to use Washable Kwik Stix to add some colorful flourishes for fun.
