What’s the buzz? This bee-themed alphabet match is just one of many letter matching games you can add to your homeschool preschool lessons this spring!
With the arrival of spring, it’s the perfect time to incorporate spring-themed learning activities into your homeschool preschool lessons.
One such activity is this fun bee-themed preschool alphabet matching game. Kids will have fun matching each bee to its flower.
Letter Matching Games
Start your lessons with a fun bee-themed alphabet book. The Alphabet Tree by Leo Lionni is perfect! Preschoolers will see how letters come together to form words and words come together to form sentences.
While you’ve got your little one’s attention, this would also be a great time to introduce the word pollination to your little ones. Talk about how bees help flowers grow as your little one practices matching the uppercase and lowercase letters in this activity.
What You’ll Need
Preparing Your Game
Print out the letter matching game (below), and laminate each page for durability.
Once the pages are laminated, cut them apart so that you have a total of 52 alphabet cards (26 bees and 26 flowers). I prefer to use my paper cutter, because it is much faster!
Once your cards are prepped, your preschoolers are ready to play and learn!

How to Play
To start, simply lay out the cards face up on a flat surface. Have your child match a bee to its coordinating flower by matching the uppercase and lowercase letters.
For younger children, you can set out a few bees and flowers at a time. Maybe start with 3-5 sets adding a few more as your little one becomes more familiar with the alphabet.
Variations for Older Children:
For older children, set out the entire alphabet and let your child start matching the letters.
Children who have a good grasp on the alphabet (uppercase and lowercase) can use these cards to practice ABC order. Just have them lay out a handful of cards in ABC order, and then have them match the letters.
