Alphabet activities for preschoolers
These alphabet activities are easy to put together and will help preschoolers recognize their letters and letter sounds. My son loved doing these activities with me and I can’t wait to do them again.
Alphabet puzzle hunt
- Alphabet letter puzzle
- Place alphabet letters in a tray and cover with rice. Search for the letters and match to the alphabet puzzle.
*Inspired by Busy Toddler
Dot sticker alphabet match
- Toilet paper tube
- Colored dot stickers
- Write the alphabet letters on the toilet paper tube and on the colored dot stickers with a sharpie. Match the dot stickers to the toilet paper tube.
*For another activity, you can cover the toilet paper tube in packing tape to make a binocular. Call out letters and have your child look around the room for things that start with that letter.
- White crayon
- Cardstock paper
- Water color paints
- Write the letters of the alphabet with white
crayon on a piece of cardstock paper. Have your child
find the letters with water color paints.
Stack the letters

- Alphabet letters
- Build a tree with the popsicle sticks on top of the toilet paper roll. See how many letters you can stack on top of the tree.

This is a fun snack to end with. They can use the letters to write out their name and practice the sounds while enjoying each letter.
