Ants and the Letter "A"

The Letter "A" is for Ants and Apples.

For this project we used construction paper, scissors, glue and dry black beans.

I cut out the "A" and an apple.

Cheyanne glued on the "A", the apple and of course the black beans for ants.

I did draw a few lines next to the beans to make the ants look as if they had little legs.

Here is another ant project, if you are not doing letters.

I think this is a cute ant craft. I borrowed it, from my daughter's teacher, she has some of the most amazing ideas. My daughter is lucky to have such a creative teacher.

Materials used: Construction paper, fabric squares, glue,markers and black beans.

First we glued down the fabric square for the picnic blanket.

Then the kids decorated their pictures with a tree, a basket and sun.

After getting the picture like they wanted, they glued on the black beans for ants.

Here are the ants crawling to the picnic basket.

Love these, how fun to combine apples and ants in your A activities. We featured this post in our letter A roundup.
