A is for Astronaut Letter Craft


This uppercase A astronaut was too much fun to make! We did it this week along with our Astronaut Preschool Pack.

What You’ll Need:

  • white, pink {or skin toned} and black foam sheet
  • tinfoil
  • scissors
  • glue/tape {I love glue dots!}
  • black marker


How to Make the ‘A’ for Astronaut:

  1. Cut an uppercase A from a piece of white foam sheet. We used a piece that was 4” x 5”.
  2. Using the excess white foam, I cut out arms/sleeves, a white helmet and a white ‘space pack’ for our astronaut.
  3. Using pink foam, cut out a face for your astronaut, just slightly smaller than your helmet.
  4. Cut space boots and gloves from the black craft foam.
  5. Cover the space pack with tinfoil.
  6. Glue the boots, arms and gloves onto the uppercase A.
  7. Glue the space pack onto the back of the A. We added some straps by rolling pieces of tinfoil and wrapping them around the A like backpack straps.
  8. Draw a face on your astronaut ~ don’t forget to add hair!
  9. Glue/tape your astronaut’s helmet and head onto the top of the letter A.
