Christmas Letter Matching Cards for Preschoolers

I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner! You can begin to get your little ones into the Christmas spirit by adding some fun holiday-themed learning activities to your homeschool preschool lessons. Preschoolers can practice matching letters with these Christmas-themed alphabet cards.

FREE Christmas themed alphabet cards for preschoolers to identify and match letters and letter cases. Can be used in a variety of different ways, great for toddlers and preschoolers!

Christmas Letter Matching Cards

This no-prep activity is perfect for your Christmas homeschool preschool activities. All you need to do is print out the alphabet cards. Laminate them for durability. Then, cut them apart.

How to Use the Cards

Uppercase Letter Match:
Print out two sets of these alphabet cards. After printing and cutting out the cards, set the lowercase letters aside for a later time. Mix up the Santa cards (they're the only ones with uppercase letters). Spread them out on a table, and let your little ones begin matching the uppercase letters. Or, you could play this as a memory game. Turn all the cards facedown and have your preschooler flip over two at a time. When they find the match, they remove the cards from the table.

Lowercase Letter Match:
Use the cards the same as I described above. This time, however, use only the Christmas tree cards as they have lowercase letters on them.

Uppercase to Lowercase Letter Match:
Use the cards the same as I described above. However, this time, use all of the cards. Have your preschoolers match an uppercase (Santa) card to its corresponding lowercase (tree) card.

One more tip:

You could make this a self-correcting activity. To do so, you'll need some small stickers. Put matching stickers on the back of each matching set of cards. Then, after your child has made a match, they can turn the cards over to check themselves. I don't recommend this for the memory game, however. The goal of this activity is to learn to identify the letters of the alphabet. If you add a self-checking sticker to the cards (on the front), your child may begin looking for the matching sticker instead of the matching letter.
