Superhero Alphabet Matching Activity with Blocks
Supplies & Materials:
How to Prep:
- To prepare this activity, gather the supplies, the stick one foam alphabet sticker on the wooden blocks you plan to use. I used five wooden blocks for each letter of my son’s name.
- Then write the letters being used on the superhero figurines.
- Once the all the blocks and superhero figurines have letters on them, set up the wooden blocks to look like a city landscape. And set out the superheroes.
How to Play:
To do this activity, invite you child to match up the letters on the superhero figurines to the letters on the wooden block buildings.
This is an excellent activity for kids to do to work on letter recognition. You can make it more advance by having them match uppercase letters to lowercase letters.
We love doing hands-on activities for letter recognition! Check out some other activities HERE for learning the alphabet!
