Indian Corn Letter Matching Activity for Preschoolers


I may complain about the weather, but I truly do love the fall season.  There is something refreshing about the cool air, falling leaves, and the different hues of red, yellow, and orange.

I also love fall decorations-- pumpkins, scarecrows, and Indian Corn to name a few.  

Inspired by Indian Corn, I put together a simple and festive fall letter matching activity for my 3 year old.

With a hand-drawn picture of Indian Corn and a sheet of dot stickers, my 3 year old worked on letter recognition and fine motor skills.  I love simple and easy activities!  

This activity can easily be adapted to numbers, too.

Letter Matching Indian Corn for Preschoolers


First prep the activity by drawing a piece of Indian Corn on a sheet of paper.  

Choose several letters your child has been working on recognizing and write them all over the piece of Indian Corn.

Somewhere on the page write out a "key" for your child; I chose the letters /m/, /a/, /t/, and /u/.

I wrote out those letters at the bottom of the page and placed a colored dot sticker next to each one.  /M/ was red, /a/ was blue, /t/ was yellow, and /u/ was green.

Have your child choose a letter to find first and place the coordinating color on that letter.  

Continue until all the letters are covered with tiny dot stickers.

My 5 year old helped out with this activity, but I loved that it was a simple and easy way to practice letter recognition AND sneak in fine motor skills. 

It was a fun way to learn and play using our stash of mini dot stickers!
