A small amount of prep is needed for this activity. Choose three different colour sheets of construction paper and pull out your Alphabet Refrigerator Magnets. Stick with maximum of between 6-8 letters per sheet (depending on the age your child). Then tape them to the fridge. I used washi tape but painters tape will work as well. You want something that won’t leave a mark on your fridge.
Place all the letters into a container and then have your little choose one. My three year old made a little game of this where she didn’t look to see what letter she was pulling out so that she could be surprised everytime.
Then I just asked her to match the letter to the sheet based on its colour. Now I did all this while I was preparing dinner. So she pulled out letters and told me what they were. I asked her what sound it made (and if she could tell me something that began with that sound).
My daughter had no problem placing the Alphabet Refrigerator Magnets to the paper and having them stick. The magnets are powerful enough to go through the paper!
So much learning
This activity combines letter and colour recognition perfectly all the while letting you actually get a few things done in your kitchen without your little one underfoot!
Simple and Fun Alphabet Matching Activity
Really, this activity was so simple and so made for Alphabet Refrigerator Magnets, that I wondered why I hadn’t been using these amazing little amazing resources more! And the best part was she loved it so much she wanted to do it again. So we did it again with different colours and different letters!
