Are you looking for 25 Days of Christmas Activities for your kids to do this holiday season? Try this Christmas Lights Letter Match Activity! Your preschoolers will work on learning the ABC’s and develop their fine motor skills in one activity!
Christmas Lights Letter Match Activity:
Not only is this Christmas themed activity an interactive way for preschoolers to practice letter recognition, but it’s also a great way for them to develop their fine motor skills. By connecting the cards together using connect links, your kids will work on their hand and eye coordination, finger muscle strength, and much more.
Why Are Fine Motor Skills Important?
From holding a pencil to turning the pages in a book, kids use their fine motor skills every day as they are learning to read and write.
The development of the small muscles in the hands and fingers in coordination with the eyes is important in not only children’s learning but also in their everyday life.

- 26 Capital Letter Christmas Light Cards
- 26 Lowercase Letter Christmas Light Cards
What Else Is Needed:
- White Card Stock or Copy Paper
- Laminator and Laminating Pouches
- Hole Punch
- Connect Links or Math Links
To prepare this alphabet activity, click on the pencil below to download and print the cards. I like to print my resources on white card stock because it is more durable. But, you can use white copy paper too.
Next, laminate the cards for extra durability and so your kids can use this activity over and over. Then, cut the cards apart and punch holes on all of the black dots.
You can store the cards and connect links in a pencil box or pouch for a literacy activity that is easy to set-up and use.
If you don’t have connect links, you can cut a pipe cleaner into pieces that are about 3 inches long. Then, bend the pieces into ovals shapes to create your own links.
How To Do The Christmas Lights Letter Match Activity:
To begin this letter recognition activity, your preschoolers will pick a capital letter card and identify the letter on it. Next, they will sort through the cards to find the matching lowercase letter.
Your kids will then connect the two cards together using connect links or math links. They will continue connecting the letter cards together until they have matched all of the capital and lowercase letters.
If your pre-readers are just starting to learn the letters of the alphabet, you can start with just a few cards and then add more as their letter knowledge increases.
This Christmas Lights Letter Match Activity is a fun, hands-on way for your preschoolers to practice matching capital and lowercase letters and work on developing their fine motor skills!
