How Do Kids Learn Letters?
Kids learn letters through repeated exposure to the letters of the alphabet. They learn to recognize letters, learn letter sounds, & learn to write letters through a variety of alphabet activities.
There are many hands-on letter activities that will help kids learn the alphabet in a fun way. Here is an activity that will help kids learn to recognize letters and learn proper letter formation as they work on fine motor skills.
Make Learning the Alphabet Fun
From alphabet playdough mats to alphabet dot activities, preschoolers love hands-on activities. They love to touch and feel and play as they learn letters. Hands-on activities also provide a great way to work on improving fine motor control.
Your kids will love using these q-tip letter cards for a fun fine motor and literacy activity. I love that they can be used in a variety of ways.
Q-tip Painting Letters
Add a small amount of paint to a container or bottle cap. Your kids can dip a q-tip into the paint, and then paint dots on the letter cards.
Do you see how there is an extra little circle on one of the dots? I highlighted the starting point of each letter. This little visual cue will help your kids remember where to begin each letter.
Offer a variety of paint colors and your kids can get creative if they like.
You don’t want to get paint out? No problem! Your kids can also tap a pencil eraser on an ink pad and then stamp a dot of ink onto the letter cards. Easy, peasy, and fun!
Pinning is also a great fine motor activity, and there is just something satisfying about making holes in things. Provide a push pin or a corn-on-the-cob holder to your kids and they can poke holes in all of the circles on the card.
