You'll see lots of fun homeschool activities, from making your own letter book to going on a treasure hunt and playing letter card games.

Alphabet Games

One of the nicest free preschool games is to go on a treasure hunt.

Why not go on a homeschool letter hunt?

  • Hide some letters round your house. You can write the letters on pieces of paper, use magnetic letters, or try letter tiles.

You can help by hiding letters on your child's toys and cuddlies which begin with the same sound.

P.S. It's always more fun for preschoolers if there's a reward to go with finding the treasure!

You can also have fun using letters to make preschool card games.

Playing cards
  • Just pick a few letters your child knows and write them on some plain white cards.
  • Make a copy, so each letter is on two cards.
  • Shuffle the pack and deal them face down.
  • Get your child to uncover matching letters.

 You can get a lot of pleasure and learn a lot at the same time if you make your own game as your child grows older.

Alphabet Books

letter book

A lovely way to enjoy learning is to make your own preschool letter book

How exciting to make your first real 'book'!

You can make your own homeschool 'book' by folding sheets of paper in half and stapling them in the middle.

  • A fun cover for your book would be to print out one of our free 'All About Me'  worksheets, or your child can draw a letter on the front.
  • All About Me is a great start for alphabet activities where your child can write their own name, age, and their best pet and toy - all very important preschool reasons to know how to write letters!
writing worksheet
  • If you write out a letter your child knows on a different page, they can have fun finding pictures of animals and objects which start with that letter and gluing them inside.
  • You can liven up your child's book up by giving your child some real photos to go in it. Can they stick their own photo in? And what about one of your pets?
  • You'll find homeschool crafts for kids come alive if you add a few exciting touches. 
  • Glitter is always fun (if a little messy!), and you could add variety by using alphabet stencils and letter stamps for some of your pages.

Preschool Alphabet Activities

magnetic letters

There are lots of ways to make alphabet activities fun, and one good way is to make letters do something unusual - stick on things!

Magnetic letters have lots of uses, from writing poems on fridge doors to livening up radiators and coloring a child's magnetic easel.

You could also follow the animal alphabet worksheets theme and have some animal magnets to go with your magnetic letters.

We had a lot of homeschool fun playing games pushing magnetic letters into play dough to make letter shapes.

Play dough is also great for making colorful letters with our easy homeschool recipe.
