Alphabet to Go is a fun paper craft that will enchant preschoolers. Children will use their imaginations to write and decorate this long, alphabet book. In addition, children will be able to decorate a small box to store their book in. After children have let their imaginations run loose, they will be able to begin learning or reviewing the letters of the alphabet. This is a great, on-the-go activity for bored preschoolers!

What you'll need:

  • 4 sheets of cardstock
  • 1 small box
  • Tacky glue
  • Scotch tape
  • Scissors
  • Crayons or markers
How to make your Accordian Alphabet Book craft:
  1. With adult supervision, cut four pieces of cardstock in half, lengthwise. Set one of the halves aside. Line the seven remaining pieces of cardstock up and tape them end to end. (see photos)
  2. Begin folding the paper back and forth (like an accordion) making sure that each of the panels of paper is folded into four sections. You should end up with a total of 28 squares. (see photos)
  3. Stretch the paper out and write the letter "A" on the back of the first folded square. (see photos)
  4. Write the letter "B" on the next folded square and continue writing each subsequent letter of the alphabet on a new folded square. (see photos)
  5. Turn the paper over and write the letter "a" on the front of the second folded square. Write the letter "b" on the next folded square and continue writing each subsequent letter of the alphabet on a new folded square. (see photos)
  6. Once complete, have your child decorate the book with markers or crayons. (see photos)
  7. Take the last piece of cardstock and cover the box with it. Decorate the cardstock and write "Alphabet to Go" in the center of it. (see photos)
  8. Once your folded alphabet book is done, glue the blank side of the first square to the bottom of the box. Glue the blank side of the last square to the top of the box. Allow the glue to dry completely. (see photos)
  9. Your Alphabet to Go is now ready to go! So pull out your book and start learning your alphabet!
