We've got a lot of fun letter blend ideas for the /cr/ blend! Try some of these crafts or activities to reinforce the /cr/ sound.
Hungry Crocodile Game
Try this super easy crocodile game to practice letter blends like the /cr/ sound! Using an empty container (green pod dish detergent containers work especially well!), glue eyes and teeth onto the lid. Then cut out cardstock “fish,” and write a different letter blend on each one. Let your child feed this hungry crocodile the fish as you encourage them to say each letter blend sound!
ABC See, Hear, Do 2 Crab Craft
Make this adorable crab craft, inspired by the ABC See, Hear, Do 2 book! Then share your amazing creations with us!
These crayon rubbings are another great way to incorporate art into letter blend practice. Start by prepping the letter blend rubbings in advance—use a glue gun to write each letter blend on the back of a piece of cardstock. Once the glue dries, give your child a crayon and a piece of paper. Set the letter blend underneath the paper, and have your child “rub” the paper with the crayon. Watch their amazement as the letter blend starts to “appear!” This is a great way to practice the /cr/ sound!
