We have a lovely little printable game for your preschoolers to play today. This Valentines game is a way to keep the kids learning and do so in the spirit of Valentine’s day. Help your kids develop their motor skills, recognise the alphabet, and match uppercase and lowercase letters. This printable is as cute as it is useful. Let’s take a look at what the pack contains.
What will you be getting when you download the Valentines game?
Valentine’s alphabet game
This fun printable pack has quite a few pages to it to make the experience as educational as possible for your kids and allow them plenty of opportunities to practise.
The download includes:
- 3 of each letter in capital and lowercase in colour
- 3 of each letter in captial and lowercase in black and white
- a coloured envelope set for each letter
- a black and white envelope set for each letter
Here is one of the pages that we have for you below, but you will be getting the entire alphabet both in the coloured ready to print version and in black and white too.
Another portion of the game is the envelopes that come with it. Each envelope has the corresponding letter printed on the cover and are available both in black and white and coloured versions.
Getting started with our Valentines game
This game has been designed to help your child play and practice different learning skills. Here’s how to get started:
- print out your sheets,
- cut out the letters,
- cut out your envelopes,
- assemble each envelope.
If you have a laminating machine then you can also laminate your envelopes and letters for your kids to keep reusing them.
Once you have your letters and envelopes printed out, the fun begins!
How to play
The easiest way to play is to scatter your letters and have your kids bring them to the corresponding envelope. You can start off with a specific letter to help them focus on letter recognition. Once your child brings you the letter, “A” for example, practice phonics by asking them to play out the sound before putting the letter in the envelope.
Perhaps they can also name something beginning with the letter. And to make it even more challenging, ask your kids to give you a word that begins with either a lowercase “a” or an uppercase “a”.
Here are more ideas for games to play with our Valentine’s alphabet game:
- colour all of the letters the same colour,
- match all of the letters of the same colour together before sorting them into their corresponding envelopes,
- use them for crafts,
- create Valentine’s Day cards.
- flip the cards over and play a matching game, you can match either the colours or the letters,
- and so much more!
As you can see, the games that you can play are many and we hope that you print out the game and let your imagination soar!
