Summer Literacy Activity

Ice Cream Letter Match Activity:

Through this hands-on activity, your preschoolers will not only practice letter recognition activity, but they will develop their fine motor skills too. 


By connecting the cards together using connect links, your preschoolers will work on their hand and eye coordination, finger muscle strength, and much more.


Learning the ABC's

What’s Included:

  • 26 Capital Letter Ice Cream Cards
  • 26 Lowercase Letter Ice Cream Cards


What Else Is Needed:

  • White Card Stock or Copy Paper
  • Laminator and Laminating Pouches
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch
  • Connect Links or Math Links


Letter Recognition Activity


To get this letter activity ready for your preschoolers, 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 copy paper too.


Next, laminate the cards so your kids can use this resource over and over. Then, cut the cards apart and punch holes on all of the black dots. 


If your pre-readers have just begun learning the ABC’s, you may want to sort the cards into groups and start with just a few cards. You can then add more as their letter knowledge increases.


Finally, you can store the cards and links in a small box or bag for a no-prep, on-the-go activity.


How To Use The Ice Cream Letter Match Activity:

To begin this alphabet activity, your pre-readers will pick a capital letter card and identify the capital letter on it. Next, they will sort through the cards to find the matching lowercase letter.


Fine Motor Skills


Your preschoolers will then connect the two cards together using connect links or math links.


Fine Motor Activity


Your kids will continue sorting, matching, and connecting the letter cards until they have found all of the capital and lowercase letter pairs.


Letter Match Activity


This Ice Cream Letter Match Activity is a fun, hands-on way for your preschoolers to practice matching letters and develop their fine motor skills!


Can I Do This Activity Without Connect Links?

If you don’t have connect links, you can cut pipe cleaners into pieces that are about 3 inches long. Then, bend the pieces into ovals shapes to create your own links. 


You can also have your children use the letter cards to play a variety of games such as Memory, Go Fish, and many more.
