Celebrate National Unicorn Day with this Unicorn Alphabet Sensory Bin! In this fun sensory activity, your preschoolers will practice learning the ABC’s!


Dot Painting Activity

Unicorn 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 preschoolers 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 A Sensory Bin?

A sensory bin is a container or tub filled with a material such as water beads, sand, or shredded paper. You can also add other objects that will stimulate your children’s senses.


They are a fun, hands-on way to explore and learn other concepts such as letter recognition and pre-reading skills.

Alphabet Activity


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


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 unicorn cards so your children can use this activity over and over. Then, cut all of them apart. 


To set-up this sensory bin, fill a plastic container with pink and purple shredded paper. You can also add unicorn mini erasers, pom poms, or any other small manipulatives.  Then, put the unicorn cards in the sensory bin. 


How To Use The Unicorn Alphabet Sensory Bin:

To use this letter recognition activity, your preschoolers will pick a unicorn out of the sensory bin and identify the letter on it.


Learning the ABC's


If you are using the lowercase or capital letter recording sheets, your kids will then color the letter they picked using dot markers or crayons.


They can also cover the letter with a mini eraser, pom pom, button, or other manipulative. 


Letter Recognition Activity


If you are using the letter writing recording sheet with the blank circles, your children will write a letter on each one.
