Kids Alphabet Practice Perfect for Valentine’s Day!
I had some heart-shaped cardstock lying around so I thought of using them for some kids alphabet practice. It’s really easy to prepare for this alphabet matching activity. Simply write the uppercase letters on one side of the cardstock hearts and the lowercase letters on the other side, then cut the heart-shaped cards into halves (so the uppercase letters and lowercase letters are on halved cardstock hearts). We started out using the whole lot of cards, which is a total of fifty-two pieces!
It was too challenging for The Rock, so I separated the whole lot into stacks of different colors and worked with one stack at a time, which made it much more manageable for him.
Princess wanted to join in the fun, but matching the uppercase letters to the lowercase letters was too easy for her, so I asked her to try to make words with the letters. Of course the letters used to form the words were of a mixture of both uppercase and lowercase. After that, the ever creative Princess decided to form a fish out of the kids alphabet hearts. I thought that was a really neat idea and we did a few more rounds of that as it was very enjoyable for us!
What I set out to do with the Rock turned out to be more than I planned for, so always leave room for your child’s creativity and imagination!
