I have a very inquisitive little toddler, who has been showing interest in alphabet letters ever since I can remember. I have always tried to provide an environment she can thrive in by plastering posters around the house, playing with flash cards and letter magnets, and have come up with simple activities I learned from some amazing Instagram accounts.

Now, she is three and a half, she is ready for something a bit more challenging. I tried to use my alphabet bundle that has worked great with kindergarteners, but my daughter was clearly not ready to write or color at that level. I mean, she’s only three after all, and doesn’t even know how to hold a crayon properly yet! Hehe. So, I made a whole new line of alphabet activities that focus on fine motor skills which could even be used by preschool and pre-k children. 

They have indeed been tested by my three and a half year old, and apart from the hole punching activity, she was able to complete them at ease. Because she didn’t have enough muscle power to punch a hole, we modified it by putting stickers or stamping on the letters. 🙂

 

These activities are great to enhance letter recognition for young learners and develop their fine motor skills. You can get the individual packets or get the big bundle at a discount!
