This print and play alphabet matching game makes it a quick and easy Valentine's Day activity for preschoolers (or toddlers & Kindergartners!)

First, choose and print, the uppercase matching printable or lowercase ABC matching printable.

Place it in a page protector to save it for later/ to keep it clean.  (Because it's always when I DON'T think a mess will happen, it does.  Go figure!)

Provide your child with letter manipulatives.

Encourage your child to pick up a letter, identify the name and/or sound of the letter, and then find its match on the Heart Match and Cover Printable.

Valentine Theme ABC Recognition

To extend learning, once your child has matched all the letter manipulatives on the printable, call out letters to your child and have him/her find the letter and take it off.  

This is a great way to "clean up" and get extra use out of the printable before putting it away!

Preschool Valentine Activity

For an extra sensory experience, hide the letter manipulatives in a simple sensory bin or add fine motor skills practice by having your child unwrap each letter first like we did in this activity. 

Or, hide the letter manipulatives around the room and have your child go on a little scavenger hunt to find the letters prior to completing the matching game.

As you can see there are plenty of ways to take a simple activity such as this Valentine theme alphabet matching game printable and tailor it to meet the needs of your kiddos!
