Print Your Own Baby Bullet Activity Page!

My 4-year-old son just finished his first year of preschool, with one more to go before kindergarten (sigh). In the first year, they focus on letter recognition, one of the first major building blocks of reading and writing. He can recognize his name and most uppercase letters in the alphabet, but he can only write a select few, since he’s just starting to gain control over his writing utensil and motor skills. He doesn’t yet recognize lowercase letters at all, unless they’re part of his name.

In order to help develop his letter-recognition skills, I wanted to make an activity page for him where he could see both uppercase and lowercase letters for the same word, in a context that he understands. He’s not a fan of store-bought coloring or activity books for some reason, but he does enjoy free drawing, so I hope to encourage him with something I made myself. It also gives us a tiny bit of structure and brings some focus to our long summer days.

After making this page, I thought I’d share it with you! It’s a wonderfully easy way to spend quality time with your kiddos, helping expand their growing brains. I had fun coloring, too — coloring for adults has been shown to have impressive health benefits — and you can have your little ones practice their upper and lowercase letters, as well as the names and colors of 4 fruits and vegetables. Make it interactive and feed them a puree including these foods when they’re done!
