One of my favorite things I've done with my kids is their preschool alphabet books. The little lady looks back through hers all the time. It's a learning tool turned keepsake.
The little guy's we're doing a little differently than hers. He will start 3 year old preschool this Fall, so we are only in the process of making his book now. We love our Do-A-Dot Markers, so when I came across these printable letters from Tot School we were set. I printed each letter and bound it into a spiral with my Cinch.
On the opposite blank page we will make some sort of handprint animal that begins with the letter. That's what I think makes it such a sweet keepsake for when they are older...looking back at those sweet little hands.
Which brings me to the little lady's book..
Hers we did on carstock or construction paper (whatever was handy). The idea for each page came from Moments of Mommyhood. She has awesome ideas for each letter! We used a lot of hers, but some we came up with ourselves. We needed the word we used had to be relevant, something she can identify with in her real life, for the book to serve it's purpose...becoming familiar with letter sounds.
I'm only posting the pictures of the letters we did differently, for the rest of them check out her blog.
