Yummy ABC Printables

Towards the end of last year, Thing 2 showed a real interest in helping me in the kitchen.  Thus, I created Yummy ABCs for him.  However, as with any three-year old, his interest have changed.

I had created most of the alphabet and since we will not be using them, I won’t be writing any blog post about them.  So, in case there is anyone out there who might find them helpful, I thought I would put the whole collection that I completed in one blog post.

Each letter includes:
Beginning Writing
Letter Writing Practice
Blackout Game
Letter Maze
Lacing or Punching Pages
and more!

Letter A
Letter B
Letter C
Letter D
Letter E
Letter F
Letter G
Letter H
Letter I
Letter J
Letter K
Letter L
Letter M
Letter N
Letter O
Letter P
Letter Q
Letter R
Letter S
Letter T
Letter U
Letter V
Just to let you know, I have not done the final editing on most of them.  I usually do that once we have worked through them.  However, since we never worked through them, they were never fully edited.

Hope you enjoy!

{Totally 3} Yummy Letter D

This week may have been Thing 2’s favorite week thus far, despite that we had a drastically scaled down week this week.  We only did school two days this week.

This week was Yummy Letter D.


Thing 2 continued handwriting practice using the printables that I made him which has a pre-writing practice, a beginning letter practice and a letter practice.


We played the blackout game I created last week again this week.

He also continued with the cut and paste pattern printable that I made for him.

We also reviewed the shapes triangle, square and circle using a simple worksheet I made that had him color the different shapes.


Besides going to get doughnuts one morning this week, Thing 2 made deviled eggs.  I would share the recipe, but I can’t seem to find the paper that I wrote it down on, since I made it up as I went.  If I find the paper, I will come back and update this post with the recipe.

    {Totally 3} Yummy Letter C

    Thing 2 was not feeling school this week. I think it may be because letter C is the letter in which I got the idea to do the yummy letters for him.  So 3 weeks ago, we did some of this material, but at that point I just wasn’t so sure he was getting it. 

    However, after this week I have changed my theory.  I am starting to think that Thing 2 knows more than he lets on, but some days he tries so hard to be the anti-Thing 1 that he pretends that he does not know anything. 

    Letter Activity:

    We had a lot of fun this week with foods that start with the letter c.  Each day he made an uppercase and a lower case letter c out of food.  We used candy, corn, and celery.


    He also completed the letter C maze, poking page and coloring page in the Yummy Letter C packet that I made.

    I also introduced a new game called blackout.  Two players take turns rolling a die.  The person to blackout the last letter C wins.  Thing 2 really enjoyed the game, once he decided to play. 

    Thing 2’s victory celebration when he beat me at blackout.


    Along with the blackout game (above) which worked on counting, we also worked on AB and ABB patterns using circles and squares.  He has caught on to patterns fairly quickly, which surprises me since some days he acts like he knows nothing.


    We continued with prewriting and writing the letter C.  However, I think I need to find something else to add to this lineup, because I think he is getting bored.

    Cutting Practice:

    I mixed up our cutting practice this week by having Thing  practice cutting on celery.  It is the celery that we used to make the letters C and c pictured above.


    As part of our Yummy Letter C week, we made C shaped sugar cookies.  You can find the recipe {HERE}.

    {Free} Printables Linky Party

    With all of the changes I have made to both Thing 1 and Thing 2’s curricula, I have started making a few more printables again so that I can tailor the curriculum to their individual interest.

    This week was the first week using Thing 1’s new math curriculum.  This is the third curriculum we have used.  This week we spent some time matching the numbers 0-10 to the corresponding words.  Thing 1 loves trains, so this week I revamp an old engine shed game into a practice activity and game.  The activity was divided into two parts; the numbers 0-5 and 5-10.  To practice the number/word recognition, you roll the die (provided) and then have your child park their car, train, truck, whatever on the correct spot.  For the game, two or more people take turns rolling the die.  The first person to fill their board wins.  Both games were big hits with Thing 1.  You can read a little more about the activities {HERE}.  You can download the printables {HERE}.

    The second activity is a simple number/word matching game.  You can read a little more about the activities {HERE}.  You can download the printables {HERE}.

    This week I continued reviewing the alphabet with Thing 2.  We worked on the Yummy Letter B.  Thing 2 is really enjoying helping me in the kitchen with the different recipes we have been making.  You can read more about his week {HERE}.

    Each download includes:
    Pre Write Practice
    Writing Practice
    Letter Maze
    Poking Page
    Patterns (AB and ABB)
    Roll and Graph
    Cutting Page
    Color and Cutting Page

    Get the download {HERE}.

    The blog post dedicated to Thing 2’s week contains the blueberry muffin recipe as well as a few other activities we did that relate to our letter B week.

    I also made a version of the parking game for Thing 2.  Using a regular die (provide.) Have your child roll the die and count the dots.  Then he parked his car on the corresponding number.  Thing 2 enjoyed his version of the game and used a car, instead of a train.

    You can get the download of the roll and park game {HERE}.

      {Totally 3} Yummy Letter B (Printables)

      This week was Yummy Letter B, for bananas and blueberries!  Thing 2 is really starting to enjoy the Yummy Letters and he gets excited to see what we will be making for each letter.


      This week, Thing 2 continued using the pre handwriting, and handwriting sheets that I made to go along with Yummy Letter Bb.  He is not interested in handwriting practice right now like he was a couple of weeks ago, so I am not pressuring him to complete the handwriting.  However, we do take the time to talk about the pictures and the letters we see.  I at least try to get him to trace the lines with his finger.

      Letter Activity:

      This week we continued with some of Thing 2’s favorite activities; including the letter maze and poking pages.

      I also cut our pieces together to make the letters B and b.  I wrote the letters on our white board and had Thing 2 recreate the shape.  He did a great job and was super excited that he was able to do it.


      We did lots of math activities this week. We started the week making the number one out of blueberries.  We also counted the blueberries.

      Thing 2 worked on AB and ABB patterns.  I was glad to see that the patterns were relatively easy for him to do.

      He also did a letters Bb roll and graph that I made for him. He immediately understood how to do this.  While he was working, I would periodically stop and ask him which one had the most, which column had the least, and so on.

      We also talked about circles.  One day I had cut out three different size circles, a small triangle, and two different shaped rectangles, for him to create a snowman.  Before he put his snowman together, I had him identify all the different shapes.  We also put the shapes in order from largest to smallest.

      I also did a car park game with Thing 2 that works on counting and number recognition.  I simply made a parking lot with the numbers 1-6. Then he would roll a die, count the number and drive his car to the appropriate parking spot.  You can get the printables I made of this activity {HERE}.

      Pre Reading:

      As in weeks past, I am continuing to read books to him, while taking time to have him locate the letters we have already talked about.


      We made some super yummy blueberry muffins.  You can get the recipe for the muffins we used {HERE}.  Thing 2 and Thing 3 helped me make the yummy muffins.

      What fun have you done with the letter B?

      {Totally 3} Letter A Review

      As we jumped back into school last week, I just wasn’t sure how much Thing 3 had retained from our long break off.  So I decided that it might be best to do a couple of weeks of review for Thing 2.  So we started back with the letter A.

      Thing 2 has been really interested lately in helping me in the kitchen lately, so I have changed started making some of his alphabet activities relate to food.  I have created the Yummy ABCs.  This week was the letter A for apples.  I though about adding asparagus, but there was no way he was going to go near that.

      You can download what I have of the Yummy Letter A {HERE}.

      Since it was a review week, we didn’t get to everything and I didn’t take very many pictures.


      Thing 2 completed the pre writing and letter A sheet.  I let him use a pencil, but he asked to use the dry erase markers.


      This week in math Thing 2, worked on sorting by colors and shape.  He also ordered apples from biggest to smallest.  We also worked on graphing.  He loves using the do a dot markers.  Lastly, we worked on patterns.

      Pre Reading:

      For pre reading practice, I read him a book and had him point out all the letters he recognized.

      Letter Activity:

      We did several different letter activities.  He did a do a dot page, a poking page, and a letter maze.


      My plan this week was to make homemade applesauce, but we didn’t get to it.  Instead I took the boys to the zoo since it was going to be 75 degrees.  However, here is how you would do it.


      apples (3-4 lbs.)

      1. Core and peel all the apples.
      2.  Cut into approximately 1 inch pieces.
      3A.  Then steam until soft.  Once soft, add a little bit of the water and mash until the desired consistency.
      3B.  If you don’t want to steam the apples, you can put them in a pot with water covering them and boil until soft.  Remove from water and put into a bowl.  Mash the apples.  You may want to add a little bit of the water from the pot that you cooked the apples.  Mash until your apples are the desired consistency.
