Letter Blend /sh/ Crafts and Activities

We've got a lot of fun letter blend ideas for the /sh/ blend! Try some of these crafts or activities to reinforce the /sh/ sound.

Shells Sound Game

This is a super simple game that is a cinch to put together!  Start by collecting shells (or pick up a bag at your local craft or dollar store). Underneath each shell, write a different letter blend. Then flip them back over. After turning a shell, the player must correctly say the letter blend in order to keep the shell. The person with the most shells at the end of the game WINS!

Valentines Crafts and Activities

Need simple crafts and activities for Valentine’s Day? We’ve got you covered!

Hide-and-Seek Hearts

Hide-and-Seek Hearts is super simple, but such a fun game for your kiddos to play. Cut out hearts (we went super easy with foam hearts, but any hearts will do!) and write a letter on each one. Then hide the hearts around your home or school for your kids to find! As they find each one, encourage them to say the letter sound or name. And make sure to have fun!

Confetti Heart Card

This confetti heart card will be a hit with your little one! It may require adult help to assemble, but the result is mesmerizing! Start by cutting a heart shape out of a piece of cardstock. Then cut a slightly larger heart out of both another piece of cardstock (we used pink) and a laminating sheet. Tape the laminating sheet over the original heart cutout, followed by the pink cardstock heart. When taping to the pink heart, leave a space at the top. Pour glitter in between the laminating sheet and pink cardstock. Finally, finish taping the top of the heart to make sure the glitter can’t escape, and voila! A fun, snow-globe effect of glitter in a heart-shape, making it the perfect Valentines card for your little ones to give out or keep for themselves!

I Love You Thumbprint Craft

This thumbprint craft can be completed in just a few minutes, but it may become artwork you will cherish for years to come! We used a mini-canvas with a magnet attached, so it could easily be displayed on the fridge. But feel free to use cardstock, watercolor paper, or whatever you have accessible! Dab paint on your little one’s thumb and help them make a heart shape with two thumb-stamps. After they wash their hands, give them a marker to write a message like “I love you.” Hang the final product on the fridge or give as a gift to someone you love!  

ABC Heart Letter Match

No prep time? No problem! We love this ABC Heart Letter Match. We wrote uppercase letters on sticker hearts we found in the Target dollar section, and then we wrote matching lowercase letters on a piece of paper. Give the paper and stickers to your little ones so they can match the letters. This doubles as a great fine motor activity!  

Sugar Cookie Hearts

Let’s be honest—sugar cookies are perfect for any holiday. Letting the kids decorate their own cookies adds extra fun and excitement— plus, it helps to keep those little hands busy!   

We hope you enjoyed our Valentine’s Day crafts and activities!

Chip Can Sorting Game

This game is super simple to make but highly engaging! Using some recycled chip cans, we made quick labels from construction paper with targeted blends.

Red and Green Bowtie Alphabet Sensory Bins

Bowtie pasta makes for a wonderful holiday sensory bin! To make it extra special, add color! To do this, first pour ¼ cup rubbing alcohol into a Ziploc bag. Next, add 5-8 drops food coloring.  Then add 2 cups of uncooked pasta, seal the bag and mix until the pasta is evenly coated. Finally, dump the pasta onto a baking tray lined with a paper towel. Let dry several hours or overnight. Repeat this process for each color you want. Once dry, add to a bin with letters and let your little ones have fun exploring and learning!

Snowman Snack

Here’s another simple and yummy holiday treat! Give your child a few banana slices, pretzel sticks, and chocolate chips, and let them build their own snowman snacks!  

Holiday Alphabet Game

This holiday game can be customized to fit any shape or theme, making it one of our favorites. Start by drawing an outline of a shape, such as a dreidel, snowman, or tree. Add circular stickers around the outer-edge of the outline, with designated “start” and “end” spots. Then, grab a die, game markers for each player (we used gumdrops!), and flashcards. On each person’s turn, they can choose an ABC See, Hear, Do flashcard (or homemade letter cards), say the letter name, the letter sound, and a word that starts with that letter. If they get them right, they roll the die and move that number of spaces. The best part is that you can change the rules and content to fit your child’s specific needs!  Don’t forget to DM us your own versions!
