What is your child currently practising? Uppercase or Lower case? Or both? You can create this matching game in Whichever way you need to make it challenging for your child.
We did uppercase to-uppercase Alphabet matching. So here is how to set it up.
First, Let’s start by preparing a leaf template out of cardboard. Use a leaf as a reference to draw it and cut it out using a cutter.
Now you can use the cardboard template to draw outlines of 26 leaves on the cardboard base. Just draw them randomly on one or more sheets of cardboard. Also, write on each leaf on the Cardboard with letters randomly or in order.
The next step is to write the letters on the leaf. A bold marker would be perfect. As you see in the image below, the letters in orange leaves can be seen easily and will be easy for the child to identify. So go for Yellow or Orange Fall leaves to create this activity.
We used three sheets of cardboard and have written letters in order. The activity is ready! Place the Leaves next to the board or in a tray and let the child match them up.
To make the activity more interesting, hide the leaves all around the house and let the child hunt for the treasure and put it in the right place on the cardboard.
