H is for Helicopter Preschool Craft

By Sinea Pies

Letter H is for Helicopter craft made with popsicle sticks, cotton balls, colored paper and lots of glue! This craft works very well for H is for Help, too!

The Letter H lesson in my preschool class last week was based on the word HELP. We learned about all sorts of ways people can get and give help. We studied first responders as well: firemen, police officers, life guards, crossing guards, doctors, nurses ... we really worked H is for Help up one side and down the other. 

I got a great book about helicopters to read to my little students. We learned that helicopters are often used to rescue people and animals. Another letter H word!

Quite by accident, I discovered that one of our classroom dads is an Army Chaplain. When she saw the photo of a big military helicopter carrying a heavy vehicle, little Miss E cried out "My daddy does that!"  That was a fun moment :)

To fill out the lesson we learned the simpler parts of the aircraft: cockpit, tail boom, tail fin, rotors and landing skids. And then we made this simple craft!
