We started out with a simple tape-resistant painting project. I got the idea from hands on: as we grow.
B is not the easiest letter to write with tape, so it's not perfect. Chiquita got paint all over and had fun giving her paint brush "baths" in a wet rag in between colors, or more often. I found that the wet rag approach was much more effective than a cup of water because with the water we ended up soaking the page and having dissolved pictures.
Next we did a boat craft! I love crafts that use the letter to make the thing that starts with the letter.
In Spanish for preschoolers (just Chiquita and me this week) we had lots of B fun. We started with a coloring page showing a bombero (firefighter) and we danced (bailabamos) like ballerinas, basketball players, burros, etc. We ended with a ballena (whale) craft.
I liked this super simple baseball craft we did. Beisbol in Spanish starts with B just like baseball in English (yeah!). We started out by watching a clip of a Dora episode where boots plays baseball, since it's not a sport that Chiquita gets a lot of exposure to. While she was watching that I free handed a ball and bat and cut them out. Chiquita glued them over the little "b" in beisbol on a baseball field.
We finished our B week with a Peruvian bandera (flag) coloring page. It was simple since the Peruvian flag just has red and white.
