Camping Alphabet Game
This alphabet identification game is perfect for reinforcing letter recognition and strengthening visual discrimination skills with little ones.
This camping-themed alphabet activity is great any time of year, but is perfect to do prior to your next camping trip or backyard campout.
Start with a story
I always love beginning my lessons with a story. You can kick off this lesson by reading one or more of the camping stories featured below.
• Good Night Campsite – Get your little camper ready for your next camping trip. Your toddler will explore their favorite campsite and all the fun outdoor activities that come with it, like hiking and swimming. They’ll even find chipmunks, frogs, and fireflies! Roasted marshmallows by the campfire included!
• Curious George Goes Camping – George tries to be helpful, but he of course just ends up upsetting a nearby camper. As he’s hiding in the woods, he meets a forest creature who catapults the mischievous monkey into a chain of even more outrageous events!
• Llama Llama Loves Camping – Llama Llama goes camping for the very first time and learns a valuable lesson: what seems scary can actually be super-duper FUN!
PREPPING THE ACTIVITY
To prepare this activity, print the letter cards on cardstock and laminate them for durability. You can laminate the letter mats or leave them plain.
If you laminate them, have kids identify letters with a dry erase marker. If you don’t laminate them, kids can use markers or bingo dotters.
PLAYING THE GAME
Cut apart the laminated alphabet cards. There is one set of uppercase and one set of lowercase letters.
Turn the cards face down on a table. Have students flip over one card, identify the letter on the card, and find it on the alphabet mat.
Students can mark the letters with a dot marker, pencil, button, or mini-eraser.
You can have kids match uppercase-uppercase, uppercase-lowercase, lowercase-uppercase, or lowercase-lowercase.
