Toddler/Preshooler letter of the week craft O is for Open with related craft, tracing sheets and fruits/vegetables. Set Up:

We started with a cut out letter "O" then I showed my son how to trace the inside of the "O" on another craft paper.  I cut out the inner "O" leaving a tab on the left side then my son helped me glue the tab to the "O" creating a door.  Then we glued the "O" to our craft paper being careful not to glue our door closed in the process.  When we were finished we colored inside our door so that we could open it and see our drawing or close it and hide them.

We finished by talking about why some things have doors.  Our fridge has a door to keep the cold air in so that our food stays good, our oven has a door so that we can cook food in it without making the whole house hot, our cupboards have doors to hide things in so we don't have to see them, etc.
