ABC Word Animal Crafts PRINTABLE
Animal Letter Crafts are of course super popular! To expend on this theme, we have created this super special and fun Animal Word Craft Set! All As coloring pages or in full color – depending on your time and resources. Both preschoolers and kids will LOVE to color these in, cut out the individual letters and assemble the Animal Words!
Such a fun way to explore each letter of the alphabet with your young chargers! You could combine these with some sight word coloring pages too.
