Letter boards are so much fun!
You can use them in so many ways and one of our absolute favorite ways to use ours is via a fun kids activity!
A kids activity? But, how?
Well, the letters in alphabet boards can be used for learning letter sounds, in fun ABC activities and all because of the wonderful letters that make up an alphabet board!
Who would have thought, right?
So, I’ll show you below how we went about this easy alphabet preschool activity using a letter board!

Letter of the day activities for toddlers
So, how can we go about using this alphabet letter board for toddlers?
A fun way to go about using a letter board for toddlers is to work on a minimal amount of letters (3 letters for instance) and work on letter sounds and letter names.
You can add a fun sensory filler like we did for a fun scoop up the letters and add them to the letter board (great fine motor practice!)
Another fun way is to match the uppercase letter with its lower case letter.
Maybe try working on one letter every week! 🙂
Letter A activities for 2 year olds can look like bringing forth different images of beginning sounds that start with the letter A such as apple and alligator.
A toddler writing board can be so much fun as a start for learning about letters, letters sounds and the alphabet. 🙂
Play and learn activities for preschoolers
Another fun way to go about learning for preschoolers is to complete the activity such as we did with the letter board.
My LO is currently working on vowel sounds so I added the 5 letters (a,e,i,o,u) into the sensory tray.
She picked them up and added them into the tray for a fun fill in the alphabet with the vowel letters.
So, as she inserted the vowel letters into the letter board we discussed their letter sounds.
Learning vowel sounds is the basis for learning pre-reading skills. 🙂

Alphabet matching activities
Another fun way to go about using a letter board is to practice specific letters.
Maybe, you are working on the letter I for preschool.
Practice with the letter I only and work on its uppercase and lowercase version to create a fun uppercase/lowercase letter matching activity of the letter I preschool kids can play to learn with.
Letter A preschool activities can also be the start of learning about letters. Lots of fun ideas can stem from the letter A such as: apple, alligator and acorn.
Alphabet matching activities are a great way to make learning fun.
