Good morning! Today I have some fun free printable ABC cards! I created these cards for a sweet reader who wants to use them with the children’s calendar she created with my DIY Children’s Calendar free printables. What a great idea! I love the idea of adding a “Letter of the Day” to the calendar. It is great way to add another learning opportunity to calendar time and perfect for little ones just learning their letters!
The cards are designed to coordinate with my DIY Children’s Calendar and they are the same size as the weather cards. There are three sets of cards available for download including uppercase and lowercase letters as well as a combination of both.
These cards can be used for so many things in addition to the Children’s Calendar! We’ve been having a lot of fun playing around with them this week!
Our favorite activity was finding objects in our play area that started with each letter. I laid down 6 letter cards on the floor at a time and my daughter searched for the objects that matched each letter. It was a fun activity to do together and soon she was finding more and more objects to add to each letter. We lucked out a bit with this activity since we have the Learning Resources A-Z food items with our play kitchen. For some of the tougher letters like V and X these really came in handy!
We used the uppercase cards with that activity and then used the lowercase cards with our Learning Resources Alphabet cookies. I laid out four letter cards at a time and my daughter practiced scooping the correct cookies onto the sheet pan. You can do this activity with a real sheet pan and spatula and lay the cards directly on the pan. You can use any letters you may already have including letter magnets, puzzle pieces or foam bath letters!
These cards would also be great for a game of Memory, Go Fish, matching or a letter scavenger hunt.
I love the idea of using these ABC cards with our calendar as well as for fun learning activities! I hope you enjoy them too! Grab the free downloads below :)
