Do you need Earth Day activities for your preschoolers? In this Earth Day Letter Match Activity, your pre-readers will develop their fine motor skills while they match capital letters to lowercase letters that look like our planet.
Earth Day Letter Match Activity:
Not only is this Earth Day 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, your preschoolers use their fine motor skills everyday as they are learning to read and write.
The development of these skills is important so your kids can grasp a pencil, form letters, write, and more.

What Else Is Needed:
- White Card Stock or Copy Paper
- Laminator and Laminating Pouches
- Hole Punch
- Connect Links or Math Links
To get this alphabet activity ready for your kids, click on the button below and fill out the form. Then, 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 so your children can use this resource over and over. Then, cut the cards apart and punch holes on all of the black dots.
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 Use The Earth Day Letter Match Activity:
To begin this letter matching 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 alphabet, you can start with just a few cards and then add more as their letter knowledge increases.
This Earth Day Letter Match Activity is a fun, hands-on way for your preschoolers to practice matching letters and develop their fine motor skills!
