This Christmas-themed letter matching alphabet game will give kids a hands-on opportunity to work on letter recognition this holiday season!
This activity does take a little time to prep. Cutting out the ornaments can be a bear, but the effort will be well worth it when your preschoolers master letter recognition!
Print, laminate, and cut! That’s all you’ve got to do to get this project set up for your preschoolers.
This letter matching alphabet game is perfect for your educational Christmas activities for preschoolers.
Letter Matching Alphabet Game
To get started, I suggest you print all of the pages on cardstock. It’s sturdier than regular printer paper and can stand up to repeated use. Laminating the pages before cutting them out will add yet another layer of durability.
Then, just cut it all out. I use a paper cutter to cut out the tree cards. It makes that part go much quicker than cutting out all of the circles on the last few pages.
Once you’ve got all of the pieces cut out, you’re all set!
I suggest starting with just two or three of the Christmas tree cards. Have your child identify the letter featured on the Christmas tree card. Then, search through the ornaments for four more of that letter – two uppercase and two lowercase.
Place the ornaments on the circles on the correct tree to decorate the alphabet trees.
As your kids become more proficient with the 2 or 3 cards you started with, add a few more. Continue doing this until your kids can correctly sort all of the ornaments onto the correct Christmas trees.
