Alphabet Games for Kids

To try this abc learning games you will need a few simple materials you probably already have on hand:

Supplies

  • Laminator / Dry Erase Pouch
  • Dry Erase Marker
  • DividerLetter recognition games



Prepping this game is super simple. There are a few optional ideas to make this game last longer, but it doesn’t have to be complicated.

The printable set comes with a red board game, a blue board game and a set of letter tiles. After printing the set out, first cut the letter tiles apart from one another.

If you wish to use ABC beads, magnets or other ABC manipulatives that you already have, that is fine too. Kids could also write the letters on the game board instead.

I would suggest laminating at least the game boards so that you can write with dry erase markers, otherwise each game board will be one time use only. Alternatively you could use dry erase pockets or sheet protectors.

You’ll also need to set up some sort of divider between the two players. This could be a piece of foam board, a large book, or a picture frame. Kids could also sit on opposite sides of the couch with clipboards.

On their own game board, kids will place letter tiles onto some of the squares on the top of their game board. This should not be full. We picked 7, you could probably go up to 12, which would be half. These letters will stay put througout the game.

The person to go first will ask something similar to “Do you have a letter in spot 4?”. If the other person does, they will tell the letter that is there. Once that happens, the first person to go will mark that letter down on the bottom grid of their game board.
If the person does not have a letter in spot 4, the turn is over.

The next person goes and so on and so forth.  The first person to guess all of the spots, wins.

Extension Ideas

  • Put velcro on the back of the letter tiles and inside the letter squares. Since the letters will stick, you could easily take this game on the road!
  • When a child guesses the spot correctly, they could spell a word that starts with that letter – to add a bit of challenge.
