Letter Matching Game

I was going through a closet and I came across this game I had made for Colton when he was learning his letter. This is such and easy and inexpensive game to make for you children to learn their Upper and Lower case letters.

Take you child's favorite cookie cutter and trace it on to a piece of cardboard to make a pattern. Then trace the pattern on construction paper or poster board. Trace and cut out 52 shapes. Then write the a letter on each shape. One set of upper case and one set of lower case. Now match them.

For my 2 older kids, I cut out 52 mittens and put the letters on them. Then I hung a clothes line in the house and had them match each set. They would the hang the set on the clothes line with clothes pins. They loved this game.
