How do you help a kindergartener learn the difference between d and b or p and q?

For the difference between the d and b, I told my boys when they were little, it's a b if you could make a capital B out of the lower case b.

A little d is DUMB because he doesn't face the same way as his mother (d D) and a little b is BRAVE because he faces the same way as his mother (b B). Just a thought...

Try showing them the letters in cursive first! in cursive, those letters are distinguishable, and once they learn the directionality of the loops in the cursive letters, it will be easier for them to identify the printed letters !!
