Build-a-Letter and Alphabet Race


Many kids learn things kinesthetically, and this is a great activity to reinforce letters. I had students who struggled to learn through other forms, but whenever we’d do this activity, things seem to “stick.”

Letter E

Letter E

Have your children make various letters with their bodies. You may have to demonstrate at first. I always like to point out the different ways kids thought of to make the same letter.

As a side note, my son had to search for letters to put in his ABC book at preschool each week. We did this activity for each letter, took a picture, and printed it off for him to take. His teacher said the other kids always looked forward to seeing how he created it with his body!

Alphabet Race:

Put some letters on the floor on the other side of the room. I used foam letters from an ABC puzzle and put out like 5. Have your child stand on the other side of the room. Call out a letter. Your child runs down and finds the letter as fast as they can! Repeat with other letters.



  1. My son will love doing this! Thanks for the great ideas Angee. šŸ™‚
