Clothes pins are a great tool for Preschool and Kindergarten!
This activity works great for developing letter recognition, word recognition, and fine motor skills.
Simply print off these word cards on card stock (you can even print them double sided to save paper). Cut out the cards and laminate. Write letters on clothes pins.
Then have your child match the clothes pins to the letters by pinning them onto the card.
To save on clothes pins, you may only want to have enough for your child to pin on one card at a time. To do this, write out the entire alphabet except Q and U. Duplicate O, G, Y, and L because they appear twice on the same card. This method calls for 28 clothes pins.
If you would like for your child to put clothes pins on every card at the same time, write the following letters: A (10), B (1), C(2), D (1), E (7), F (1), G (5), H (1), I (4) J (1), K (1), L (4), M (1), N (8), O (13), P (2), R (6), S (2), T (6), V (1), W (3), X (1), Y (4), and Z (1). This method calls for 86 clothes pins.
