Good morning! Today I have a fun ABC Learning Board tutorial inspired by one of our favorite books, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. With all the stores setting up their back-to-school displays and all of my magazines and catalogs featuring kids with backpacks on the cover, I have definitely been in a “back-to-school” mood. I decided to create a few projects I could use with my kiddos this fall including this fun Chicka Chicka Boom Boom ABC learning board.
This ABC board is a perfect place to play around with letters. If your kiddos love Chicka Chicka Boom Boom they will have fun with board and can even act out the story as you read it!
This was so easy to make, I was able to make it in one nap time – which is always awesome! I found my magnetic letters in the dollar section at Target (they have had some really great school stuff lately!), but you could use any magnetic letters you find or you could even make your own!
Supplies Needed for Chicka Chicka Boom Boom ABC Learning Board
- Free printable: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Printable
- Magnetic board (or you could use your refrigerator)
- ABC magnetic letters
- Magnetic Adhesive Sheet
STEP 1: Print off the free Chicka Chicka Boom Boom printable. Cut it out close to design while leaving a small amount of white space all the way around.
STEP 2: Adhere the printable to the magnetic adhesive sheet. Simply peel up the paper from the sheet and stick your printable down with the design facing up.
STEP 3: Cut out all of the palm tree shapes.
And you are finished! You can arrange the palm tree any way you like and even make it tip over just like in the book. The magnetic sheets work great, though really small fingers may have a hard time peeling them up. I found the palms were easier than the trunk. They do slide fairly easily on the board and we were able to overlap one on top of the other and have them still stick. We weren’t able to overlap too many of them since then they started to loose their magnet strength and fall down.
I was really excited to use the magnet adhesive sheet and have another project that uses it that I will be sharing later this month! Hope everyone has a great week!
