Letter Recognition Activities

This fun letter recognition activity is super easy to set-up and such a fun, hands on activity for toddler, preschool, and kindergarten age kids!


Materials Needed:

  • Clothes Pins
  • Small Alphabet Stickers or Foam Letters
  • A paper plate
  • A marker

After you’ve gather all the materials you’ll need for this activity,  you’ll need to do just a little prep. Write the letters of the alphabet around the paper plate and put the alphabet stickers on the clothes pins. That is it. You’re ready to go.


The first thing I did was go over all the letters with my daughter. I showed her each clothes pin (with the letters on them) and we said the letter together. Then I showed her how to clip the clothes pin to the paper plate. I let her practice a few times before we actually started the activity. Once she got the hang of it, she knew exactly what to do. She started matching the letter on a clothes pin with a letter on the paper plate.


It was really a lot of fun watching her do this activity and get the hang of the clothes pins. I could tell it was really helping her with her fine motor skills and muscle strength. This Alphabet Match Activity is a total winner in my book! It’s a great way to review letter recognition and work on fine motor skills at home or in the classroom.
