Letter Stamps Name Recognition Activity

During the holiday season, we received a few packages that contained over 100 combined feet kraft paper that helped secure the package during transport. Of course, I looked at it and saw free art supplies which means I'm adding a kraft paper category to the site.

One of the gifts Little Bear received was the Melissa and Doug Wooden Alphabet Stamp Set. Although the set includes a stamp pad with 4 colors, I purchased a few individual stamp pads to help Little Bear differentiate between uppercase and lowercase letters.

How We Play 

I wrote Little Bear's name on the kraft paper, then I pulled out the corresponding letters and placed them in our trusty ice tray to keep the stamps corralled. For older kids, allow them to search for and pull the letters they need from the storage tray. You can even scramble the letters to make it a little more challenging.

While we played, I asked questions like:
  • Can you find the uppercase (say a letter in their name) on the paper?
  • Can you find the same letter stamp?
  • Can you mark the uppercase (letter in their name) with the stamp in red ink?
  • Can you match the lower case stamp to the letter on the paper with black ink?

This is a fun preschool literacy activity that focuses on fine motor skills, colors, and matching. If you need any supplies, I've put together a shopping list of some of our favorite products while working with stamps.
