This Alphabet Dominoes Busy Bag is perfect for preschoolers learning to identify beginning sounds using pictures and letters. The game is easy to play and they’ll be working on important literacy skills at the same time. My preschooler really likes to play this game and line them up all the way across the living room. It takes up some space when all lined up, but it could be modified for a smaller space by making a second or third row.
Alphabet Dominoes Busy Bag
You will need:
- A color printer with ink
- Laminating Pouches
- Alphabet Dominoes Printable (found below)
Print, laminate and cut the dominoes out. Now it’s time to play!
How to Play:
Find the “Start” domino with the green light. Look at the picture on the right side of the domino. Find another domino that has the beginning sound letter and place it next to the first domino. Repeat. They will place the Alphabet Dominoes in a straight line. (We usually play this in our living room floor.)
When they have matched all the letters and pictures, they will come to the “Stop” domino with a red light.
I hope your child enjoys this game as much as we do. It’s a great alphabet activity for preschoolers or kindergarten kids to learn their beginning letter sounds with a little fun attached. These skills are some of the first steps to reading, so they are important for kids to master. As always, I like to make learning fun and inviting.
This game gave my preschooler a workout as he went back and forth between the domino line-up and the pile of dominoes waiting to be placed in the correct order. To add some movement with this game, have your child do different types of movements between the domino line and the pile–hopping like a bunny, slithering like a snake, galloping like a horse, or crawling like a bear are all favorites around our house. Of course, this is also a great quiet time activity, too.
