Extend the Activity
To create a quick and easy alphabet matching game, print and cut out two copies of the letter cards.
Another idea is to pick some pairs of letter cards and create a simple memory game. Lay the cards upside down and have kids flip them over to try and find a matching pair.
Kids can also practice placing cards in alphabetical order. If you have math chain links, use a hole punch to make a hole at the bottom of the card. By linking the cards together they can practice fine motor skills and alphabetical order.
