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.
Come over to Facebook and Instagram to see how else we play!
That’s so cute that he is into that! My 2 year old sees me teaching my 4 year old and is always so excited to come and “learn” as well!
Really cute cards!
These look super cute and easy. I have been making all sorts of alphabet manipulatives for my 3 yr. old. Thanks for sharing!
