So you either are about to have or do have a Preschooler. It’s exciting, right? How can you assist with your child’s learning? What can you do to get them prepared for preschool? What should they know how to do prior to starting? These are all questions just about every parent has when their kids start Preschool/Kindergarten. You are among the masses and right at home if you literally have no clue.
Make learning the basics fun! My Bottle Cap Letters Matching Game makes learning your letters a fun activity and in my years, as long as its fun and doesn’t seem like “work” your child will stay interested longer. Once the fun wears off it becomes a forced learning environment and your child will lose all interest. I have been there and trying to get a 3-4-year-old to sit still and continue is no match you want to be in. At times it helps the child learn if you allow them to hold onto their raggedy teddy bear or blanket while they listen and play the game.

By keeping learning times short and sweet and YOU interacting with you child as you are playing the game they will retain more, thus accelerating their education. The Bottle Cap Letters Matching Game can be customizable to your desires. We happen to be learning numbers so this is why I chose to use numbers. You can use animal, color, coin and many more stickers for this game.

How to Make Preschool Bottle Cap Letters Matching Game
Put a white sticker on each of the insides of the caps. Separate the caps into 4 groups of about 16-18 per group. Using the number stickers, stick 9 sets of them on the caps.
Repeat step 3 using the other stickers. You will have 4 different matching game sets to play.
Easy to make and fun to play!
