Gingerbread Man Alphabet Sensory Bin:
This letter recognition activity is a fun way for pre-readers to practice recognizing lowercase and capital letters. You can have your kids work on one set of letters at a time.
You can also mix the letters together and work on both depending on your children’s letter knowledge. If your kids know all of the letter names, you can differentiate this activity and have them practice identifying the letter sounds.
What Is Letter Recognition?
Letter recognition is is the ability to recognize and name all of the lowercase and capital letters. In addition, kids who can recognize the letters of the alphabet can also distinguish between them too.

I like to print my resources on white card stock, because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too. Next, laminate the cards and cut them out.
To set-up the sensory bin, fill a plastic container with brown shredded paper and red and green pom poms. You can use rice, sand, or another sensory bin filler too. You can also add jingle bells, buttons, and more! Finally, put the cards in the shredded paper.
