Drawing The Alphabet

P1220358

In a few weeks, kids will head back to school, where new and exciting things will be explored, and this project fits right in. Drawing the alphabet is a great way for wee ones to learn their letters, and for older kids to try their hand at designing their own. Many themes can be used to make your ABC’s look awesome, like crazy creatures, patterns, plants, even celebrations like Halloween or Christmas.

Materials

  • paper
  • pencil & eraser
  • ruler
  • markers, pencil crayons or paint

Instructions

1. Take a piece of thick paper and decide where you will place all 26 letters of the alphabet. Use a pencil and ruler to make any necessary lines. You can even measure out a grid to make things easier, and erase it once the letters have been completed.

2. Choose a theme, and do some sketching to come up with letter designs and colour combinations. Draw the final ones onto the paper with a pencil. Colour them in using markers, pencil crayons, or paint, and save any outlining for last. We mounted ours on a canvas board which had previously been painted, and looked great with the colours we had chosen for the letters. Then hang up your fabulous alphabet poster on the wall and enjoy.
