Alphabet fridge magnets for an easy learning game
Here are the steps I took to make this simple learning game fun and engaging for my LO.
I added tape onto a table making sure it created a zig zag form so it was maze like and fun (learning through play).
Then, I wrote letters with a sharpie marker.
Place your letter magnets next to the tape maze game and your LO can practice matching the letters its correct match.
Another fun and easy way to go about this is to leave letters out.
For example, you can write, “A, B, C, _, E, F, _ …
And you can also work with either uppercase or lowercase letters.
Using alphabet magnets in this easy activity makes learning fun!

As mentioned above you can change this game up a bit to work for other fun matching learning ideas.
Using number magnets to match to its correct number is also a wonderful way of learning about counting and numbers.
Creating 5 circles and then matching a number 5 magnet to it is another fun way to learn counting.
There are shape magnets, colorful magnets, and pom poms that can also work to match onto.
The possibilities are endless and activities that are simple like this can really go a long way!
