Construction Paper Letter B

Cut one thin strip, two rectangles, and two circles from the black construction paper. They don’t have to be perfect but if you want them to, you can use things around the house to trace and cut.

We used a ruler for the cutting so that the lines were straight.

Next, cut half a school house shape out of the red construction paper. Take the green paper and cut a two-inch strip. Glue the green construction paper to the bottom of the blue paper and glue the red house on the side of the blue paper.

Flip the letter B we cut out and glue the two rectangles to the back of the letter B. This will make our school bus windows. Turn the B over and glue it on top of the green strip of paper.
