Fun alphabet learning activities beyond the worksheets

Here are the five best fun alphabet learning activities beyond the worksheets:

  1. Hide small objects around the house or classroom that represent each letter of the alphabet. Provide clues or letter hints, and let yourself go on a treasure hunt to find the items corresponding to each letter.
  2. Go on a scavenger hunt outdoors or indoors and challenge yourself to find objects that start with each letter of the alphabet. Take photos or draw pictures of the objects found for a creative alphabet scrapbook.
  3. Incorporate movement and mindfulness into alphabet learning. Assign each letter a yoga pose that begins with that letter’s sound. For example, “S” can be “Snake Pose,” and “D” can be “Dog Pose.”
  4. Choose a letter of the alphabet and involve yourself in preparing a snack or meal that starts with that letter. For example, make “A” is for “Apple Slices” or “P” is for “Pizza.”
  5. Let yourself create art projects using cut-out letters from magazines, newspapers, or colored paper. You can make collages of words that start with each letter or create letter-themed art.
