Preschool

9 fun ABC games for kids

So you've taught your kid the ABCs...now what? These fun alphabet games will help them start to recognize letters, which is one step closer to learning to read.

First off, remember that there is no pressure to teach your kids the ABCs at any particular time. There’s a big age range for learning the alphabet that spans all the way to preschool or kindergarten, but some children show interest earlier and that’s great, too. If you’re at the point where your kid can recognize letters and adorably recite their “enemenopees,” you can make it fun to expand on those skills by trying out some of these ABC games, which cover letter-matching, making the connection between big and little letters and starting to learn how to write. Try setting a game up the night before so you can put them to work in the morning and get reacquainted with your fave ABC—A Big Cup of coffee.
