This easy-to-make Toss the Letter Matching Game uses only a few simple materials and is the ideal craft for any preschooler. Sure to test both knowledge and creativity, this game will allow children to decorate their game board and then challenge friends to see who has the best toss and who knows their ABC's!

What you'll need:

  • 2 pieces of cardstock (different colors)
  • Crayons or markers
  • Large circle hole punch
  • Large Ziploc bag
How to make your toss the matching game:
  1. With adult supervision, use the large circle hole punch to punch out twenty six circles from one piece of colored cardstock. (see photos)
  2. Take the black marker and write one different letter of the alphabet on each punched out circle. (see photos)
  3. Using a crayon or marker, write "Toss the Letter Matching Game" on the top of the other piece of cardstock. Then, write each letter of the alphabet. Make sure each letter is at least one inch tall. (see photos)
  4. Using markers or crayons, decorate the large piece of cardstock and the punched out circles, making sure that the letters of the alphabet are not covered. (see photos)
  5. Your game board is now complete and you are ready to play! To play, place all of the punched circles in the Ziploc bag, shake it up, and have the first player select a circle without looking. The player must now stand at least six inches back and toss the punched circle towards the game board. If the player lands on the correct letter, he or she must say what letter it is. If he or she is correct, than he or she holds on to the punched circle. Continue taking turns, until all the circles are gone. The person with the most circles at the end wins! (see photos)
  6. One alternative to the punched circles is to toss alphabet pasta on the game board. This is much more challenging since the pasta is smaller! Another alternative to the Toss the Letter Matching Game is to have children say the sounds the letter makes if they land on the correct letter.
