Lima beans remind me of rock play! 


Have you ever tried crafting with rocks or a fun rock activity for kids


It is so neat. 


They make for wonderful keepsakes and the littles have so much fun creating little ideas on them. 


We tried a simple matching letter game with our lima beans that my girls enjoyed very much. 


I’ll elaborate more on how simple this beans game is to put together and other fun ways you can incorporate learning with lima beans too!

It’s that simple! 




Letter matching game for preschoolers


So, how did I put this simple lima bean activity together? 


Easy peasy. 


I used two empty ice cube trays because there are 26 letters in the alphabet and each ice cube tray has 14 slots. 


I wrote uppercase letters onto 26 lima beans and then lowercase letters on 26 lima beans. 


In total there were 52 beans. 


The uppercase letter beans went into the empty ice cube trays. 


Then, the lowercase letter beans were to be matched to its correct uppercase letter beans. 


This letter matching lima bean activity is one for the books. 


Such an easy letter matching game for preschoolers for learning about the alphabet!

Besides alphabet sorting game activities you can also try a fun bean counting game or a shape matching game.. 


There are so many fun lima bean activity ideas that you can try for learning about so many different categories, seasons and so much more. 


A fun way to learn about abc and number games is to write them out on lima beans and create your childs name or a word, learn about sight words.. 


Another fun alphabet matching game would be to match them by saying their letter sounds rather than their letter name. 




Because this is the way we learn to read. 


We learn letter sounds such as a,e,i,o,u. 


Then, we can work on adding a consonant such as ba,ca,da,fa and be,ce,de,fe… and so on and so forth. 


Then, work your way up to a cvc word such as hen, Ben, ran and can..
