Create a fun and colorful Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Learning Board! A fun way for kids to act out the story, learn about their ABCs and more!
Hello Crafty Friends! Today I’m excited to share this fun Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Learning Board with you. This is a fun craft inspired by one of our favorites books, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. With all the stores setting up their back-to-school displays, 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 ABC learning board.
This ABC board can be used so many fun ways. It’s the perfect place for little ones to play with letters, act out the story while you read, or use it to form and spell words. The palm tree is formed from multiple magnets so the trunk can move and even fall over like it does in the book!
This was so easy craft to whip together during nap time and it has been a lot of fun to play with. I found my magnetic letters in the dollar section at Target, but you could use any magnetic letters you find or you could even make your own.
I used magnetic sheets which I have used for my DIY Bunny Dolls. It works really well but may be a little tricky for tiny fingers to lift up from the magnetic board. They are able to overlap but we aren’t able to overlap too many since they start to loose their magnetic strength. Overall they have worked out well, especially since my kids are mostly into moving the magnetic letters.

Step by Step Tutorial
Step One: Download and print the free Chicka Chicka Boom Boom printable tree. Cut it out by trimming along the two sides of the printable with the trunk pieces.
Included in the free files is a .jpeg of the tree which can be used as a Print then Cut file with a cutting machine and printable magnetic paper.
Step Two: Adhere the printable to the magnetic adhesive sheet lining up the two trimmed edges so they are flush with two sides of the magnet sheet.
Step Three: Carefully cut out the tree pieces.
And the board is finished!
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!
