My 3 year old, J, has been really interested in letters lately, so I’ve been trying to find new ways of playing with letters. I ran across a great matching game from A Beautiful Ruckus, and I knew I had to make something similar for J.
I already had all the materials I needed, and it took no time at all to put it together. I used:
- 3 sheets of blue foam
- Orange foam letter stickers
I cut the blue foam into 52 squares.
And then added two of each letter of the alphabet to the foam squares to make a pair.
And that’s it.
Using 52 letters for a matching game is a bit much for J at this age, so I only gave him 7 pairs to play with.
I laid them all out in a grid and J found matches of the letters.
Of course, he was very happy when he found the J’s
I love that we have a complete set of alphabet matching cards that can be used over the years.
