Outdoor Letter/Sound Matching & Kid's Co-op Link Party

I LOVE this activity!  You can do it BEFORE your child knows their letters or letter sounds!

All you need are:

The kit is intended for making posters, but of course I had other ideas.  We chose to do this outdoors because it was such a nice day.  The Poster Punch Out kit includes 150 cardstock letters and numbers so I emptied them into a bucket.    

Drew and Lainey pointed out objects they wanted to label and I told them the beginning sound and gave them the letter to tape to the object!

We even did some numbers:

Simple, educational, and fun!

If your child already knows their letters and letter sounds, you could do a more traditional sound matching activity by giving each child a letter and having them find an object that starts with that letter.

*We received the Poster Punch Outs kit free from Craft Project Ideas as part of a Rainy Day Survival Kit. Opinions and ideas are 100% mine.

  1. What a great idea for making letter recognition fun! We will have to try this this Summer.

  2. Great idea to take letter/ number learning outside... They probably didn't think it was "learning!"

    Love Kid's Co-op! Thanks for a place to link up and share!!

  3. I really like this idea. One of my little ones needs to run off energy outside so this would be great idea.

  4. I really like this! I bet it made for a more colorful outside play area! Thanks for sharing:) Happy Teacher Appreciation Week:)

  5. So much fun and what a great ideas as you said for kids who don't know the sounds yet.
