Feed Santa Alphabet Game
This Christmas alphabet game is a great way to teach or reinforce the alphabet in your preschool or kindergarten classroom or homeschool.
While this activity does require a bit of prep work, it is perfect for use at home or in the classroom. Use it to work on letter recognition or beginning sounds.
Finding unique ways to engage your little ones in learning the alphabet can be a challenge. But, when you add this alphabet game to your lesson plans, it’s sure to be a hit.
Preparing the Activity
I prefer to print these pages on cardstock. Then, I laminate them for durability.
Cut out Santa’s face, and then cut out his mouth. Cut out all twenty-six pieces of candy, as well.
To make this a true “feeding” game, you could glue Santa to the top of a tissue box aligning his mouth with the hole in the box.
Completing the Activity
To play this alphabet game for preschoolers, place Santa on the table. Shuffle the candy pieces and spread them on the table in front of your child.
Now, name a letter of the alphabet and have your child “feed” it to Santa. If you’re working with younger preschoolers, you could limit how many letters are shown at one time.
If you’re working with older preschoolers or kindergarteners, you could call out the name of an object and have your child listen for the beginning sound to feed Santa.
