This Coin Laundry letter Sorting is the perfect fine motor letter matching activity that you’ll just keep coming back to!
This activity focuses on strengthening 3 important skills which are:
- Letter Recognition
- Capital vs. Lowercase recognition
- Fine motor skills
To make this Coin Laundry Letter Sorter you will need:
- Small plain box (must gave a way to access the inside)
- larger box of any kind
- X-acto knife
- Marker (to outline)
Start With the Smaller Box
For my smaller box, I used a leftover Kiwi co subscription box that I turned inside out. You’ll want to use a box that you can draw and paint on as well as have the ability to open and close when needed.
Draw two washing machines on the cover your box and paint as desired.
Once your paint is dry, cut two slots into the washing machines.
Take Your Bigger Box
Next, take your larger box and begin to draw coins. You’ll need to draw two for each letter, 52 in total.
After this, cut the coins out with an x-acto knife. Once the coins are all cut out, write both capital and lowercase versions of each letter onto the coins with a marker.
Play and Learn
Now this activity is ready to use! Your child will have fun sorting through the letters and organizing them by uppercase and lowercase. You can label each washing machine accordingly.
Not only will this activity help them learn the differences between uppercase and lowercase letters but it will improve their overall letter recognition as well as strengthen their fine motor skills as they slide the coins into the slots.
Add an extra layer if learning by making the sounds of each letter as they drop them into the slots!
