Letter of the Week Snack: K is for Kite

Sharing is caring!

Welcome to our weekly Letter of the Week snack series where we are taking time to share a new snack idea for each letter of the alphabet.  These letter of the week snacks are a great way to start introducing letters and letter sounds to your children.

A fun idea for these snack ideas would be to incorporate them into the preschool curriculum.  On the week they are learning the letter K, you could bring a Kite snack for the kids as an extra way to reinforce the letter.  Using these letter snacks during the summer months is a great way to practice letters so that you are ready when back to school times comes.

This week we are working on the letter K and of course I thought of Kite as a fun snack idea for the kids.  K is for Kite!  You can find the instructions below on how to make this fun snack idea.

Even though this snack is really cute and looks involved to make, it is very easy!  My boys loved it as a treat!

  1. Hi Crystal! Thanks for linking up with us for the Hip Homeschool Hop! I love your post! My kids are all older now, so we don’t get to do as many fun activities like this. We do sometimes get around to crafting, though, and we always have a good time. 🙂
