Thanksgiving Alphabet Activity

To get this alphabet activity for your preschoolers, click on the button below and fill out the form. Then, download and print the cards that you want to use. 

Next, cut the cards apart. (There are two per page.) You may want to also laminate the cards so your children can use this activity over and over. 

For this activity, your kids will need to use both the full-size and mini craft sticks. You can order either the colored or natural mini ones from Amazon or make your own.

To make your own set of mini craft sticks, cut the full-size ones in half. You will then want to sand the cut edge so it isn’t sharp or rough for your little ones.
