Letter Hunt {Printable}

Letter Hunt Free Printable


Using some of our old magazines, we went on a letter hunt the first week of homeschool. Since Jonah still really needs more practice cutting, I helped cut some of the words for him (maneuvering magazines and scissors was a little difficult and frustrating) and then he cut the letters apart. Other than my minimal cutting help, he did this activity independently.

Letter Hunt Activity

It was a good chance to talk about letters and different fonts. “Look at this funny A! It has a hook on the top and a big belly!” We also looked through The Funny Font Book that I made last year.

Since we had so much fun with this activity, I thought I’d share it with you! Grab an old magazine or newspaper and take your little one on a letter hunt!

You are more than welcome to:

  • Save the files on your computer and print off copies for yourself (or classroom) whenever you would like.

I would ask that you DO NOT:

  • Host any of my files on your own or other sites.
