Get ready for the upcoming holiday with this Valentine Letter Match Activity! It’s a fun resource for preschoolers who are learning the ABC’s to practice identifying and matching letters.
Valentine Letter Match Activity:
Using interactive activities like this one is not only an engaging way for your kids to learn concepts such as letter recognition. But, it’s also a great activity for developing fine motor skills, visual discrimination skills, and much more.
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. Using hands-on activities like this one is fun for children who are learning to identify the letters of the alphabet!

- 26 Letter Envelopes
- 78 Capital Letter Hearts (3 Per Letter)
- 78 Lowercase Letter Hearts (3 Per Letter)
What Else Is Needed:
- Card Stock or Copy Paper
- Laminator and Laminating Pouches (optional)
To prepare this letter matching activity for your preschoolers, click on the pencil below to download and print the envelopes and hearts that you want to use.
If you are using the black and white printables, you can print them on colored card stock or print the colored envelopes and hearts on white card stock.
I like to print my resources on white card stock because it is more durable. But, you can use white copy paper too. Next, cut the envelopes and hearts out.
Then, assemble the envelopes by folding the flaps on the dotted lines. Then, put glue on the two side flaps and fold the envelope in half to attach them to the inside of it.
You may want to also laminate the envelopes and hearts so that your kids can reuse this activity over and over.
How To Use The Valentine Letter Match Activity:
To begin this letter recognition activity, your preschoolers will pick an envelop and identify the capital letter on it. Next, they will sort through the hearts to find the matching capital and lowercase letters.
When your kids find a heart with the matching letter, they will place it in the envelope. They will continue sorting until they find all 6 matching hearts.
If your pre-readers are just starting to learn the letters of the alphabet, you can start with just a few envelopes and then add more as their letter knowledge increases. You may also want your preschoolers to practice matching just the capital or lowercase letters.
This Valentine Letter Match Activity is a fun, hands-on way for your preschoolers to practice identifying and matching letters!
