  • This juicy clothespin craft is perfect for learning the alphabet!
  • Think Outside the Box: Sometimes the letter ‘J’ sounds like a ‘G’ — show students the difference between both letters by making separate lists of words that start with ‘G’ and ‘J.’ Then, say the words together to find their similarities and differences!   
  • Every Last Drop: Encourage students to create a juice box with all their favorite craft components — from foam to fuzzy sticks, glitter and felt — this is a great lesson in sensory detail!
  • It’s important to encourage healthy eating habits to help kids grow big and strong! Use this craft to start a discussion about nutrition on a level your students will understand — visit the USDA website for a kid-friendly resource on food, diet, and health facts and activities.
