H is for Hippo

Another foam letter craft! Go me!

  • Gray or white foam sheet or construction paper (or any color you want really!)
  • black & white foam or construction paper scraps
  • Scissors
  • Googly eye
  • Glue
  • Gray crayon if you are using white foam 

 How to make the Letter "H" Hippo
  1. Have your little one color the foam sheet gray if you are using white foam.
  2. I outlined a capital H onto a sheet of white foam (colored gray) - I just used the scissors to make an impression and then cut it out. You could also trace a letter H onto the foam or paper with a pen.
  3. Cut out a circle or oval for the body and a head shape (I made the H on half a sheet of large foam and cut the extra pieces out of the other half). I just free handed them and cut them out.
  4. Cut out 8 toes from the white foam scraps (flip over the gray colored scraps if you did it that way) and a little tail from the gray colored foam.
  5. Glue the body onto the H. Then glue on the head, tail and everything else as pictured.
  6. Add the googly eyes and you have your cute letter H hippo!
