Building letters with alphabet mats gives kinesthetic learners a way to move as they learn. Using different materials to build letters also offers a multisensory approach that kids kids engaged and interested in the task longer. For preschool flower theme activities these flower ABC mat preschool alphabet printables can be used in a variety of ways. They’d also work well for a general spring or garden theme unit.

The free printable flower letter mats are designed one to a page. This gives you a lot of flexibility for printing. Some activities require a full page per letter, while others work best with a smaller 1/2 page or 1/4 page format. Simply change your printer options to print 1 per page, 2 per page or 4 per page to get the desired layout for your activities. All mats are also available in black and white for your convenience.
I also highly recommend laminating these or using dry erase pockets so you can use them over and over again and even have kids practice writing the letters on them with dry erase markers.

WAYS TO PLAY & LEARN WITH THE FLOWER ABCS PRESCHOOL ALPHABET PRINTABLES
Use these alphabet mats for your alphabet center, literacy groups, or morning table choices in preschool. Set them out with your favorite manipulatives and kids can build the letters on their own.
Here we’re using black beans as pretend flower seeds. You could also use small tiny black pom poms, black buttons, or sunflower seeds.

As you learn about the role of pollen during your flower theme you can also use little yellow pom pom “pollen” with your flower ABC mats.
If you’d like to add another sensory component, add in some play dough! Not only does it up the fun factor, it adds in some extra fine motor practice that is needed for strengthening those hand muscles.
Save time by using storebought play dough, or make your own spring scented dough.
Kids can simply roll out play dough snakes to form the letters.
Add in even more fine motor practice by having kids press the “seeds” into the dough.
As kids are ready to do more writing use a dry erase marker and have kids follow the letter outline to practice writing. These works well if you print the pages 4 to a sheet and bind them as a flip book.
