How to Set up Fine Motor Valentine’s Day Letter Match
Grab your cardboard box, sharpie and heart cookie cutter. Trace 26 hearts on your box. Then use paint sticks to colour in the hearts red, pink and white. Then use your sharpie to write in the uppercase letters in the hearts. I made the mistake and write both the upper and lower case letters in my hearts. So don’t make my mistake. Only write uppercase letters in the hearts not both!
Grab your craft sticks and heart stickers. Use your sharpie to write the lowercase letter on the heart stickers and then stick them on the tops of the craft sticks.
Take your scissors and make a slit in each heart large enough to slide a craft stick through.
Invite your preschooler to match the heart sticks to the hearts in the box for a great fine motor literacy activity.
There are lots of other ways you can modify this activity to meet your learning needs:
My twins are almost 3 years old.
