Just like the spring flowers that are appearing this time of year, your kid’s brains will be growing during this fun ABC letter matching flower activity. We practiced uppercase and lowercase letters but you could always adapt this activity to suit your needs (numbers, spelling, and more). The activity requires very little prep work and when you are done you can reuse the supplies for a different activity of craft.
I thought about making a free printable for this activity but after thinking about cutting out tons of flowers with all those petals I decided that using foam flowers was so much easier and worth the extra bucks I spent on buying them. We found ours at a garage sale but you could always stop by your local craft store and grab whatever they have handy.

Removable Circle Stickers
Place a sticker in the center of each flower and stem. Write an uppercase letter on the set of stems and a lowercase letter on the set of flowers.

You may want to give them a small pile of matching flowers and stems to start with because 26 letters at one time can feel overwhelming for beginners. Little Dragon doesn’t know all his letters but I was there to help him. I would give him 5 letters at a time and after I said the name of each letter he was able to match them (auditory learning) eventually he will be able to match them by symbol.
After Little Dragon went through his ABCs so I had him spell his name next. I placed the stems first, and then he placed the matching flowers.
Little Tiger has been working on sight words so I had her practice spelling words she has been learning to read like the word the, you, and, has…
Once kids are done with the activity you can pull off the circle stickers and reuse the flowers for a craft or different activity!
