It’s National Unicorn Day! Your kids are sure to have a magical time celebrating while learning the ABC’s with this Unicorn Letter Recognition Activity!
Unicorn Letter Recognition Activity:
Hands-on activities are important for young children especially kinesthetic learners, because they can make the connection between what they are doing with their hands and what they are learning with their minds.
This interactive activity is also a fun way for pre-readers to practice identifying capital and lowercase letters. Depending on your children’s letter knowledge, you can mix capital and lowercase letter stars together and have them work on both. You can also have your kids practice letter sounds.
What Is Letter Recognition?
Letter recognition is the ability to recognize and name all of the lowercase and capital letters. Kids who can recognize the letters of the alphabet can distinguish between them too.
Getting Ready To Use The Unicorn Letter Recognition Activity:
- Unicorn To Feed
- 26 Lowercase Letter Stars
- 26 Capital Letter Stars
What Else Is Needed:

- Paper Bag or Cardboard Box
To prepare this alphabet activity, fill out the form below to get the printables in your inbox. After receiving the email, download and print the unicorn and stars. 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 stars so your kids can use them over and over. Then, cut the unicorn and stars out. Finally, tape or glue the unicorn on a paper bag or cardboard box and cut out its mouth.
How To Use The Unicorn Letter Recognition Activity:
To use this letter recognition activity, your kids will pick a star and identify the letter on it as they feed it to the unicorn. If your children are just starting to learn the names of the letters, start with just a few stars. You can then add a couple of stars every time they play.
When your kids know all of the letter names, they can say the sound that each letter makes as they feed the unicorn. It’s easy to differentiate this activity for your kids!
This alphabet resource can be used as an independent activity for young children in any early childhood classroom or homeschool.
This Unicorn Letter Recognition Activity is a fun, hands-on way for pre-readers to work on letter recognition and their fine motor skills.
