What goes with peanut butter? Jelly, of course! It’s National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! Celebrate by learning the ABC’s with this Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Letter Match Activity (and eating PB & J sandwiches.)
Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Letter Match Activity:
This interactive activity is not only a fun way for pre-readers to practice letter recognition, but it’s also great to use for developing fine motor skills.
By connecting the cards together using connect links, your preschoolers 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.

- 26 Capital Letter Peanut Butter Sandwich Cards
- 26 Lowercase Letter Jelly Sandwich Cards
What Else Is Needed:
- White Card Stock or Copy Paper
- Laminator and Laminating Pouches
- Hole Punch
- Connect Links or Math Links
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 white 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. You can store this activity in a small box or bag such with the links for a no-prep center.
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 Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Letter Match Activity:
To use this alphabet activity, your children will pick a peanut butter sandwich capital letter card and identify the letter on it. Next, they will sort through the cards to find the matching jelly sandwich 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 preschoolers have just begun learning the ABC’s, have them start with just a few cards and then add more as their letter knowledge increases.
This Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Letter Match Activity is a fun, hands-on way for your preschoolers to practice matching letters and develop their fine motor skills!
