Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Crafts Your Toddler will Love

Okay, I must say that I am TOTALLY LATE on the joy that is Boom Chicka Boom alphabet! I remember participating in the fun with this cute song when I was in grade school, but it completely slipped my mind until now. In the past couple of months I have learned that there are books, songs, videos, and not to mention, awesome chicka chicka boom boom crafts that my children can have fun with and enjoy.

So of course I absolutely had to do a craft post on this fun song. Not only is it a fun activity to involve your child in, but they can also get great practice learning and mastering the alphabet. I always look for those opportunities.  A plus is that the preparation doesn’t take long at all and the activity can be done over and over again.

Check out a great chicka chicka boom boom summary I found below:

The 26 letters climb a coconut tree in alphabetical order, until the tree bends so much, causing all 26 letters to fall out of the tree. Capital letters (the older relatives of the letters climbing the tree) come to help them. Again alphabetically, it describes each letter’s injury, including:

  • “a”, “b” and “c” need help getting up
  • “d” having skinned-knee
  • “e” having a stubbed toe
  • “f” becoming patched up
  • “g” all out of breath
  • “h” and “i” getting tangled together
  • “j” and “k” about to cry
  • “l” being knotted like a tie
  • “m” being looped
  • “n” being stooped
  • “o” being twisted; alley-oop
  • “p” having a black eye
  • “t” having a loose tooth

At night, the letter “a” comes back out and climbs up the coconut tree, dare double daring the other letters to catch him.

Cute right? LOL

For toddlers, it is always great to have multiple activities they can tap into as they go throughout the day to help with restlessness. Take a look and enjoy!

 Supplies (“Dollar Store Find”)

Chicka Chicka Boom Finished Activity

I love to make project posts using dollar store supplies because I just don’t think you need to spend a lot of money to entertain young children! Like me, you will most likely have some of these supplies in the house, but for those who don’t, the most you need to spend in 3-4 dollars and you will get numerous activities from this supply list!

  1. Green Poster Board
  2. Glue Stick
  3. Scissors
  4. Crayons
  5. Any letters that you may have laying around the house.

Craft Preparation

The preparation is easy, short and sweet. Obviously we don’t want our toddler handling scissors so this can be done ahead of time. Your preschoolers may be handling scissors made for children but the board is a little to think for those types of scissors.

1. Pre-cut your coconut tree leaves! A great way to get started is to outline the tree leaves in pencil on the back first so you don’t waste a poster board if you make a mistake. I pretty much cut out jagged palm tree leaves. Next start cutting! Just remember it does not have to be perfect AT ALL.

2. Next cut out your coconut tree trunk. Again outlining the trunk first will always help. As you can see in the picture, this is a simple curved trunk with some vertical lines down the length.

Get Your Toddler Involved in Putting It All Together

This step depends on your toddler’s age.

  1. Allow your toddler to help color the coconuts before or after you cut them out! Alternatively, you can do this step yourself since most of the fun starts after the set up.
  2. Violà!! You have a chicka chicka boom boom tree!
  3. Help your toddler to match the shapes!

This Is How My Son Enjoys the Chicka Boom Activity!

Bonus!

I thought I would include a great chicka chicka boom video I found on YouTube that my toddlers loves as a bonus! The song for the chicka boom book is so fun and energetic on this video. Let your toddler take a listen, especially if they love dancing, and see how easy it is to have more fun with this coconut tree!

    Very interesting crafts projects for toddlers, I do believe craft projects are a very easy way for toddlers to learn new things.

    Crafts might be even better educational tools than some of the toys on the market today, what is your opinion on crafts and toys as helping our children to learn?

    Had not heard about the chicka chicka boom boom activity before, but it sure sounds interesting. Keeping toddlers busy is not so easy sometimes. However, it is easier to deal with their character when you have all kinds of interesting activities planned.

    And we know that kids’ brains need to be stimulated, because they are eager to learn, and this activity is one of the many that can do the trick.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Oscar
