Snow Globe Letter Match Activity:
Not only is this letter recognition activity a fun way for your pre-readers to practice matching capital and lowercase letters.
But, connecting the cards together using links will help them develop their fine motor skills too.
Why Is Developing Fine Motor Skills Important?
From holding a pencil to turning the pages in a book, your kids use their fine motor skills as they are learning to read and write.
Hands-on activities like this one are an engaging way for your preschoolers to develop their finger muscle strength, hand and eye coordination, and more!

To prepare this letter matching activity for your preschoolers, click on the button below and fill out the form.
Next, download and print the cards on white card stock. Then, laminate the cards and cut them apart. Finally, punch holes on all of the black dots.
If you don’t have plastic links, you can make your own. First, cut a pipe cleaner into pieces that are about 2 0r 3 inches long.
Then, bend the pieces in an oval shape but don’t connect the ends. Your kids can use pipe cleaner pieces just like the links.
How To Use The Snow Globe Letter Match Activity:
First, your pre-readers will pick a capital letter snow globe card and say the name of the letter on it.
Next, your kids will sort through the cards to find the matching lowercase letter.
After finding the matching capital and lowercase letter cards, your children will connect them together using plastic links.
Your preschoolers will continue sorting, matching, and connecting the cards until they have matched all the capital and lowercase letters together.
If your pre-readers have just started learning the names of the letters, have them start with just a few cards. You can then add more as their letter knowledge increases.
Your preschoolers will work on letter recognition and fine motor skills as they connect the letter cards together in this winter-themed Snow Globe Letter Match Activity!
