26 Easy, Fun Alphabet Activities That Give Kids the Practice They Need

Alphabet activities make learning your ABCs more fun. There are so many ways to practice your ABCs, you might be able to do one alphabet activity a day for a year without repeating. We’ve gathered over 25 super fun alphabet activities so kids can play and learn every day.

1. Write letters on dried beans

Large dried white beans are inexpensive to purchase and easy to write on. Grab a sharpie and write all the upper and lower case letters on them. Then put each set in a pile (or baggie) and ask your kids to match them.


2. Letter sort with sticky notes

Write individual letters on sticky notes and then place them all over your house or just on every stair in a staircase. This practice game has a lot of variations—all tied to sorting. Ask kids to sort by:

  • lowercase
  • uppercase
  • letters in their name
  • straight lines (H)
  • curved lines (c)
  • both curved and straight lines (B)
  • consonants
  • vowels

For even more practice: have them sort their finds into ABC order, match lowercase letters to uppercase letters, and then, find a way to sort them that’s new.

3. Write letters in shaving cream

Squirt shaving cream on a table and let your kids write letters in the cream. Smoothe it out to erase and start again. Bonus: their hands and your table will be cleaner than ever!

5. Make sensory ABC bags

This one is great because you can change up what you put in here and even move to sight words. You’ll need a gallon bag with a ziplock top. Add letters written on pieces of paper, magnetic letters, scrabble tiles, or anything else you can think of with letters. Then fill the bag with rice or oatmeal and seal it. Kids dig through the rice through the bag to find the letters. When they find them, they write down the letter they find until they locate all 26 letters of the alphabet.

7. Play musical alphabet

Set up letters in a big circle on the floor. You can use magnetic letters or just write them on index cards. Put music on and have your child walk around the circle to the music. When the music goes off, your child tells you the closest letter. Expand on it: ask your child to name three things (colors, animals, etc) that start with that letter.

8. Sponge the alphabet

Cut sponges into letters and use them for sponge painting letters or playing in the tub.

9. Put together name puzzles

Write the upper and lower case letters in a name and then cut them apart in a simple zigzag. Mix up the letters and ask a child to match them up and put them in the right order.

10. Make letters from nature

Find the alphabet right outside. Choose natural objects that already look like letters, or arrange them to look like them.

12. Go on an alphabet scavenger hunt

The fun part about this for grown-ups is that there is no prep. Tell kids to go find objects that start with each letter of the alphabet. To make this game take longer, designate spots for them to bring each item back—one at a time. Every item must be approved before they can move on to the next. This allows for fewer meltdowns at the end when an item is deemed inaccurate.

13. Make your own ABC book

Personalizing the ABCs helps kids process and retain their learning. One of our favorite alphabet activities starts by creating a book out of 26 pieces of paper and staples or hole punches and a ribbon. Have kids write an uppercase and lowercase letter on each page. Finally, have them draw or cut out pictures of things that start with each letter. Voila!

14. Create ABC popup books

Use the following tutorial video to learn how to make different kinds of pop up pages. Then, create a page per week for 26 weeks for each letter. At the end, use a glue stick to glue them all together to make an ABC popup book!

15. Stamp letters in playdough

Roll out playdough and push letter stamps right into the dough. This is both tactile and great for practicing ABCs.

19. Do the yoga alphabet

Show kids this video and take the time to learn each yoga pose. Connecting the mind and the body is great for learning.

20. Sing songs about the alphabet

Everyone loves to sing the alphabet song, but did you know there are lots of other songs to sing that can help you remember the alphabet? Try out this Sesame Street favorite:

21. Draw pictures from letters

Using letters as a starting point, teach kids how to draw. If this is too difficult at first, just write a letter and then draw a picture around the letter.

22. Highlight letters on a page

Print a page of text or grab your favorite magazine and a highlighter. Ask kids to highlight as many of one letter as they can find. This is also great for sight word recognition.

Here’s a freebie from The Inspired Apple to get you started.

23. Do-A-Dot letter tracing

These dot markers make tracing letters more fun and help kids with directionality and remembering how to write and recognize letters.

Play letter slap

Make 2 sets of index cards with all the letters on them (52 cards in all). Shuffle the cards together and deal them so each kid holds 26 cards. Together each player takes their top card and turns it upright. The player with the letter closest to A wins the hand and takes the card. If two of the same letter are played, the players slap the card. The one on the bottom of the slip wins the hand. The game ends when one player holds all the cards.

25. Match plastic Easter egg letters

Surely you have some plastic Easter eggs hanging around your attic. Use a Sharpie or letter stickers to put an uppercase letter on one half and a lowercase letter on the other. Then separate the two and throw them all in a basket. Kids pull them out and match them up. Tip: Add difficulty by not coordinating the colors.

26. Create loose part letters

What are loose parts? Loose parts are exactly what they sound like—a collection of loose materials or objects. These can be small pebbles, bottle caps, random LEGO bricks, seeds, keys, anything. Draw big letters on a piece of paper and have kids line up loose parts to make the letter.


Recognizing letters is a fundamental part of learning how to read. Without it, children struggle to learn letter sounds and identify words. Beginning readers who know their alphabet have a much easier time learning to read. Making alphabet practice a part of every day in fun ways helps create a lifelong love for letters and words.

It doesn’t have to boring, repetitive, and all about worksheets in order to learn the alphabet.

Older toddlers and preschoolers are soaking up all this information about letters and want to learn them! But they rarely want to sit and learn anything. So why not get them up and moving and learning the alphabet without even realizing that they are!

Active ways to learn are my favorite!

Download the Learn a Letter Week of Activities

1. Use the ABC Floor Mat

If you have one of those ABC floor mats, use it to learn! (If you don’t have a mat, here’s an affiliate link)

Make a game out of it, or just call our letters for them to find and put it in alphabetical order. I often put the outside part of the puzzle pieces together and call to George to find the letters to fill them in. It helps him recognize the letters and plus matching them up reinforces the letter names to what they look like.

Henry and I played this letter activity with the ABC mat and letter blocks too! It was a fun charades game with learning letters and counting!



Add letters to blocks

Just playing with blocks, whether its wooden blocks, Legos, Mega Blocks, kids can use this technique to learn letters. I taped letters on the blocks!

I printed out letters that we were working on, several of each, and some that George didn’t know yet. Just playing with them gets kids recognizing the letters. Use the letters in conversation when building.

But you can take it a step further, click here to see how we added a little more learning to the process with an extra set of ‘letters’.


3. Make it a hunt

Making anything into a scavenger hunt is always fun for the kids.

Add a little letter learning to it by hiding letters around the house for them to find. Have a list of letters for them to find and check off.

Or make it on a big paper for them to come back and match the letters up to. Click here to see how we did our letter scavenger hunt.

This can also be done for numbers or shapes, anything that you have the objects for.


4. Create a maze of letters

Making mazes is actually quite easy with some painter’s tape on the floor. First start at the beginning and make turns back and forth to the finish. Then add in more turns that don’t go anywhere.

Add letters to the maze for the kids to follow through the maze to find their way to the finish.

We’ve done this maze with alphabetical order (A to B to C all the way to Z) as well as following a single letter all the way through the maze (B to B to B) and the wrong turns are wrong letters (D doesn’t come after A, uh-oh, go back and start again. Or, oops, that’s not a B, that’s a G).


5. Turn that into a string maze scavenger hunt

Put the two together, the maze and a scavenger hunt. My kids love ‘string’ scavenger hunts. Where I string up yarn around a room, or between a ‘hallway’ of dining room chairs.

Clip letters onto the string for them to ‘find’ on their way through the maze. We did it with lowercase letters matching to uppercase letters when they got through the maze. But just calling out the letters as they find them works too!


6. Big letter learning on the sidewalk

Sidewalk chalk is always a hit! Writing letters on the driveway is a fun way to learn them.

Write pairs of letters, either the same (uppercase or lowercase) or both, and have them match them up by drawing a line between the two. Its a great way for preschooler to recognize the letters.

Add to it by talking about what letters they’re connecting, or asking what letter they’re trying to find the match for. Using the names of the letters in conversation will reinforce what they’re learning.

We’ve done this by matching lowercase to uppercase letters, as well as with matching two uppercase letters.


7. Connect the dots, I mean letters

If a large sidewalk or driveway is not available, you can do the same letter learning indoors on a roll of art paper (or butcher paper).

Not only is this helping preschooler learn the alphabet, but its also working on their writing skills. Holding the marker, or pencil, properly.

This can also be done by matching shapes or numbers (or work on counting by matching a number to a group of dots).


8. SWAT the letters!

What kid wouldn’t love swatting something? Give them a fly swatter and just watch.

Now add a large piece of paper with some letters on it and call out letters for them to swat. That’s it! How fun! Or turn it around and let them tell you what letters they swatted.

This activity can also be turned into other fun ways to learn, we’ve done letter swatting, but also sight word swatting!


9. Throw a ball

Grab one of the many balls that you probably have rolling around the house or garage. Take this outside.

Throw or roll the ball back and forth practicing letter sounds or beginning letters. Or just calling out letters! Just for fun.

I’ve seen this done with letters written on the ball too. Kids can then call out the letter they see on the ball when they catch it and pass it back.


10. Make it a race

Use all those letter magnets that I’m sure you have (if you don’t, here’s an affiliate link) on the fridge to create a race!

Shout for them to run and grab the letter ‘B’ and race back to give it to you or put it in a basket. And repeat with another letter.

Great for recognition and fun because my kids love anything that’s a race! You can also advance this by using letter sounds or beginning letters (Run and grab the letter that BOX starts with).

More ways to learn the alphabet, active or not, it can still be fun:

  • Make paper chain letters
  • Magic letters
  • Find the letter on the apple on PBS Parents
  • 50 activities for preschoolers to learn their ABCs

How to teach a child the alphabet.

Interesting techniques and tips

How to teach a child the alphabet as early as possible? How to get a child interested in learning? What teaching aids are better: primers, alphabet, cards with letters, games? What if the child does not want to learn letters? And many other questions about teaching a child the letters of the Russian alphabet were told by the teacher of the children's development center. Parents are looking for newfangled methods, trying to figure out how to teach their child letters successfully and quickly, however, this does not always lead to the expected effect. In order for the process of teaching children the alphabet to go smoothly, you need to take into account the following points related to their psychology and physiology - the age at which it is better to start learning and the characteristics of children's thinking. When is it better to start learning the alphabet The physiology of young children is such that it is difficult for them to concentrate on one lesson for more than 10-15 minutes. Therefore, at the age of 1-2 years, it makes no sense to engage in a targeted study of the alphabet, in the form in which it is necessary for further learning to read. Moreover, by trying to force the baby to remember the letters by force, you risk causing him a negative reaction to the process of learning the alphabet, thereby turning him away from further studies. Remember that it is impossible to force children to learn the alphabet, it is desirable to interest them in this, then they will react favorably to the classes.

It is also important to understand that there are no clear age limits within which a child should start learning the alphabet. For some children, this will go away “with a bang” already at the age of 2 years, for others, even at 3 years old, memorizing the alphabet will be difficult. You can start learning letters if the child:
1) easily concentrates during developmental activities;
2) has a good visual memory;
3) loves to have books read to him, likes to look at them on his own. Start learning letters with your child, for starters, exclusively in a playful way. Benefits in the study of the alphabet Of course, the main assistants in this difficult but interesting business will be the primer and the alphabet.

Exploring how these manuals differ.
1) A primer is a textbook that not only depicts letters, but also outlines methods for teaching reading, but also contains recommendations for parents on how to better learn the alphabet and conduct classes.
2) ABC is a series of manuals representing the letters of the alphabet in any variant. These can be cubes with images of letters, cards, lotto, stickers, various kinds of puzzles, sets of letters on magnets.
3) Standing apart in this series are poetic alphabets - when a letter, its sound or image is played out in poetic form. The most pleasant for the perception of young children are the poetic collections of S.Ya. Marshak and A. A. Usachev. Methods There are several popular methods on how to learn the letters of the Russian alphabet correctly, each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages. Let's look at them in more detail. The method of memorizing letters by images The essence of the method: One of the popular methods that many parents prefer is teaching the alphabet as follows: the child is invited to learn and remember a letter, fixing its perception with an image of an object that begins with this letter. Example: "A" in most cases suggests a watermelon drawn next to it, "D" - a house, "P" - a fish, and so on. This is not entirely correct, and here's why. Cons: Parents often complain that as a result, the child remembers not the pronunciation of a single letter, but the entire visual chain - that is, his “A” is a watermelon. And at
Further, when asked to show “A”, the child points to a watermelon, and when you ask him what letter it is, he answers - “watermelon”. Tip: Therefore, professional educators recommend using such alphabets or cards, only at the initial stage - at the age of 2-3 years, in order to interest children in learning the alphabet itself.

Bakhtina's interesting method Recently, the method of E. Bakhtina, a teacher and author of the primer of the same name, has become very popular in teaching children the alphabet and reading. The essence of the technique: E. Bakhtina suggests learning the alphabet in the following way: to assign to each letter its specific image, the association that the baby will have when he sees it. So, for example, “A” may be associated in a child with the sound that small children make when they still can’t speak. E. Bakhtina suggests taking advantage of the fact that the outlines of many letters can be supported by an analogy with images of objects already familiar to the baby. Example: A hippopotamus with a big belly, very similar to the image "B", "U" is very reminiscent of a snail carrying a house on its back, and "E" and "Yo" differ from each other in that "E" has "eyes" closed and they are not visible, but for "Yo" they are open.
Disadvantages: It must be said that the study of letters using this method requires a sufficiently developed associative thinking, and this is not necessarily characteristic of every child. Pros: E. Bakhtina is popular, since the process of learning the alphabet is set out in it clearly and consistently, which allows it to be used not only by professional teachers, but also by parents on their own.

Basic recommendations for learning letters according to the classical method In order to better understand how to teach a child letters, you can use the following recommendations:
1) Make cards with the image of all the letters of the alphabet, it is desirable that the cards show nothing more than the letter itself, while it should be bright and colorful, on a light background. Attach cards as you study over the child's work table, or on the wall of his playroom, thus training his visual memory.
2) It will be easier to learn the simplest vowels "A", "O", "U", "I" at the initial stage, so start learning with them. Pronounce them correctly, as if "singing". In the future, this will greatly help when you teach the child to compose syllables.
3) It is necessary to teach the child not to pronounce the name of the letter - “EM”, “ES”, “ZHE”, but its pronunciation, the sound “MMMM”, “SS”, “LJ”.
4) Start studying consonants with "B", "P", "M", "N", "T", "G", "K". Pinching consonants "H", "Shch", "Shch" are best learned last, especially if their pronunciation causes difficulties for the baby.
5) Don't rush! If your child has trouble remembering certain letters, take a break. Come back to them after a while.
6) We study letters not only when you study at home, but also on the street, while walking. Invite the young student to recognize already familiar letters on signs, in store names. Learning letters with pleasure Classes for teaching young children something should be done with pleasure, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Try to diversify the study of the alphabet by reading poetic alphabets, guessing riddles, memorizing rhymes and tongue twisters. Do not rush to teach the baby to write, for a start it is necessary that he successfully memorize all the letters, be able to call them quickly and without difficulty, and only after that you can begin to teach the child to write letters. For a full and effective teaching of writing, you will need special aids - copybooks with letters.

Slide №2 School photo.

Dear guys! Most recently, on September 1, you crossed the threshold of this school and became students. During this time you have learned to read well, count, write. And our smart one taught you this, interesting, entertaining alphabet.

Slide № 3 – Cover of the book “ABC”.

Today is the day when we must say goodbye to her.


We welcome guests,
Parents, teachers.
All acquaintances, strangers,
Both serious and cheerful.
Chorus: First class, first class
Invited you to the party!

Slide #4. (photo - September 1)

1. I entered school in the fall, in the first "a"
I am considered a schoolboy from the first day.

2. Exactly, exactly at eight in the morning, every time
A lot of schoolchildren enter the first grade.
Exactly thirty schoolchildren, friendly family.
Everyone walks in pairs - I am in the first pair.

3. We remember that cheerful bell,
That rang for the first time,
When they came to school with flowers,
In their best first class.

4. How the teacher met at the door -
Our faithful friend for many days
And a big noisy family
New girlfriends and friends.

5. Sitting down at the desk carefully,
So as not to wrinkle the school uniform,
We opened our alphabets,
Opened a blank notebook.
6. We walked along the pictures.
They walked along the steps, lines.
Oh, how much we have learned!
Oh, how much we have read!

7. March is standing outside the window,
The snow is no longer spinning,
And today we have to say goodbye to the alphabet
Guests have gathered today,
The letters are all from A to Z.
Today is a holiday in our school!
Alphabet Festival, friends!

Slide number 5 then science.
To those who want to know a lot, who want books read
About mountains and valleys, about water depths,
About rivers, stars and seas - you can’t do without the alphabet, friends!

Slide number 6. Scene "Letter A".

We lived in the alphabet letters.
We lived, did not grieve, because everyone was friends,
Where no one quarrels, there the matter is argued.
Only once did the whole thing become due to a terrible scandal:
The letter "I" did not stand in the line, the letter rebelled "I"!
I, - said the letter "I", - Main, capital!
I want me to be in the front everywhere!
I don't want to stand in a row. I want to be seen!
Presenter: Stand up!
Answer: I won't go!
I'm not just a letter to you, I'm a pronoun.
Compared to me, you are a misunderstanding!
Misunderstanding - no more, no less!
Presenter: Then the whole alphabet came to a terrible excitement.
Fu-you, well-you! - snorted "F",
blushed from resentment.
Shame! - angrily "C" said.
"B" yells: - I imagined! Anyone could do that!
Maybe I myself - an excuse!
Grumbled "P": - Try, talk with such special!
We need a special approach to it, - L suddenly mumbled.
And the angry Kommersant silently showed his fist.
Presenter: Ti-and-she, letters! Shame on the signs!
The vowels shouted: The only thing missing was a fight!
And also consonants!
We must figure it out first, and then fight!
We are a literate people! The letter "I" itself will understand:
Is there a conceivable thing everywhere I poke forward?
After all, no one in such a letter will understand neither be nor me!
Presenter: I stamped my feet:
I don't want to hang out with you! I will do everything myself! Enough of my mind!
Presenter: The letters looked at each other, everyone - Literally - they smiled,
And the friendly choir answered: - Well, let's go to the argument:
If you can write at least a line alone,
The truth, therefore, is yours!
So that I may not be able to, I'm not someone, but "I"!
Presenter: . .. The letter "I" got down to business: A whole hour she puffed and groaned,
And she was sweating - she only managed to write “….yyyyyyyy”!
How the letter “X” will fill up: – Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
"Oh" rolled with laughter!
"A" grabbed his head.
"B" clutched his stomach...
The letter "I" was fastened at first, and then howling:
Guys, it's my fault! I confess my guilt!
I agree to stand up, guys, even behind the letter "U"!
Well, - decided the whole alphabet, -
If he wants, let him stand!
It's not in the right place at all. The point is that we all - together!
That everyone - from A to Z - live like one family!
Presenter: The letter "I" has always been everything and everyone is sweet.
But we advise, friends, to remember the place of the letter "I"!

Slide #7. Parade from "A" to "Z".

Come on, letters, stand in a row:
Letters stand sedately in a row,
All are important in honor,
And each one confidently stands in place.
Like trees in an alley
They stand in a row, look!

There is me in the word and "machine".
And I'm pretty!
Did you recognize the letter Sh?
Consonants, find your pairs!
(pairs: b-p, v-f, g-k, d-t, g-s, f-w.)
Why aren't you in pairs?
And we are only voiced!
We are only deaf!
("letters" leave, "b" "b" appears)
Why are you so sad?
letters b and b:
You forgot about us!
We will fix the error.
What can you tell about yourself?
Solid sign:
I am a very hard sign, and that's why I'm proud.
I share the letters in the word,
It's a pity, they lose me!
Soft sign:
I am a soft sign.
You will find me
And in the word "pouring"
And in the word "rain".
(Children stand in alphabetical order).

Get up together every time,
When the teacher enters the classroom!
A desk is not a bed,
And you can't lie on it.
You sit well at your desk
And behave with dignity.

Just raise your hand.
The teacher will ask - you have to get up.
When he allows you to sit down, sit down.

Slide №22 (class photo)

We know letters, we know syllables.
We know how to speak, count,
And gradually, little by little
We learned to read everything!
How good it is to be able to read!
Don't pester your mother!
No need to ask your grandmother:
Read, please, read!
Don't beg your sister
"Well, read another page!"
No need to call, no need to wait,
Or you can take it and read it.
The alphabet taught us to read,
Divide words into syllables,
Revealed the secrets of many books,
Any of us got used to it!
And let's all say for this:
Thank you, ABC, to you!
The alphabet was read to the cover
Reading the "five" for everyone.
You have overcome the science of slow reading
And now you are being issued certificates.
In that they read the "ABC",
Completed the course of sciences.
And now without a break
We will read any book!
