Time to add more letters to my letter of the week resources, for preschool classes. Here is the letter A resources , letter B resources and letter C resources. Today I am adding crafts for Letter D Activities.
I have gathered a list of different letter D activities from crafts, math, letter, recipes, and fine and gross motor skills.
More Letter Alphabet Resources and Letter Crafts
The preschool room I worked in did 2 craft activities a day and one recipe a week. The kids loved to cook and eat what they made.
There were always lots of books different books for each week’s letter theme. We played games and did physical activities around the letters too. ABCs Yoga for Kids was always a favorite.

A stuffed animal or bug is a great way to introduce the letter of the week.
Recipes and Snack Ideas for the Letter D
Dough – make any recipe that you form a dough with like bread or cookies.
Donuts -Use 1 package refrigerated biscuit dough. Punch a hole in the middle of each biscuit (a bottle cap will work). Fry in 1 inch of hot oil for about 1 minute or until light brown on both sides (fry the “holes” too). When cool, shake in a bag of cinnamon mixed with sugar, brown sugar, or powdered sugar.
