We are getting so excited for Valentine’s Day. My girly-girl is finally a preschooler, and loves learning about her ABCs and 123s. I created this Valentine’s Day printable puzzle, and I’m so happy to share it with you, too!
Read on for a few simple directions and grab your Valentine’s Day worksheets at the end of this post!
As I was making this Valentine’s Day activity pack, my four-year-old daughter was peeking over my shoulder. She is so excited that I’m finally making something for her! She’s told me that she’s ready to learn to read, so we’ve started some reading activities at home.
She knows her ABC and is working on putting them in alphabetical order. This type of stick puzzle is such fun practice for her!
Preschool and Kindergarten skills:
- Recognizing capital and lowercase letters
- Alphabetical order
- Cut and color fine motor practice
- Completing work neatly and with care
Valentine’s Day Worksheet:
ABC Strip Puzzle
This puzzle will take about 15 minutes to complete. Scroll on for an idea about the process!
If you’ve never done a strip puzzle (my daughter calls them “stick” puzzles), they’re very fun! You’ll receive two pages. One for cutting and one for pasting.
Cut the strips on the dark, solid lines. It’s okay if your preschooler isn’t too handy with scissors yet, they can always glue the extra shreds and strips back down in the right places with these puzzles!
Each strip has a capital and lowercase letter on the bottom. Put the letters in order and glue them to the template sheet in order to create the puzzle.
Bee Mine! Now you’re ready to color!
