Over the years, we’ve made a fair few crafts and activities all based on the alphabet – today we’ve gathered them up in one place! We love alphabet crafts because the ways to use and make them are nearly endless. Not only are they a great way for kids to learn and practice their ABCs, but they’re a fun way for older kids to customize their room or give handmade gifts!
