This letter craft is an activity that you will have to make for your children to play with. Don’t worry, it is very easy.
You will need a piece of foam board (I got mine from the dollar store), marker, scissors, and a pencil.
Draw lines for your domino pieces. I made mine with four rows going long ways and six columns going short ways. I used a piece of scrap I had for the missing two letters. I didn’t measure them out exactly, but this is where type A’s could really have fun.
Use your scissors, craft knife, or steak knife and cut out your pieces.
This is where I drew a line across the middle as a divider. I drew mine in pencil because I always mess up.
Write upper and lower case letters on each side. I drew mine in the same direction to make it easier for my children to look at the dominoes and decide which ones matched up. I didn’t want any upside down.
This is a very good time to pay attention to which letters you write next to each other on the same piece. You want your children to be able to match the letters throughout the alphabet. I just did them in order starting with an upper case Z on top and a lower case a on the bottom of the first. The second domino had an upper case A with a lower case b. And so on.
Now throw the dominoes on the floor and start playing an matching up!
You can alter these with site words and pictures, dots and numbers, or anything you would like some hands on learning and matching. The possibilities really are endless. What are you going to write on yours?
