After becoming familiar with letters, learning their sequence is the next key step to becoming literate. This cut and paste activity helps kids move on from learning the ABCs to mastering the alphabetical order. Sunshine and flowers are everywhere this time of the year so what better representation of summer than a sunflower alphabet game!

For this activity you will need:
Below are the supplies I use personally at home. After doing so many printable activities, I’ve found that it’s most helpful to always have these basic supplies on hand.
If you don’t have the materials needed, don’t sweat! You can get it delivered to your doorstep really quickly with Amazon Prime. You can get a 30-day free trial here.
Print out the main worksheet and the missing letters page. Cut the missing letters into individual pieces. Give your child the pieces in random order and let them have a go pasting them into the correct place.
Feel like challenging them even more? Cut up ALL the letters into individual pieces and ask them to put them in the right sequence.
You could pair this activity with some of my other letter games such as this Hearts Alphabet Match Up.
While you’re doing this game, it’s also a great idea to go through the sound of each letter. Jolly Phonics have catchy songs that really help kids learn these quickly. We play the CD for Mr. R all the time. The tunes are familiar nursery rhymes so it won’t be hard to sing at all!
This free printable is actually one of 60 (yep, that’s right!) games inside my Summer Activities Mega Pack. The 100+ page PDF contains activities covering literacy, math, fine motor and art skills for kids around 2-7 years old.
It’s the perfect boredom-busting secret weapon if you have kids who get a bit stir crazy over the summer holidays. It’s also great for getting ready to go back to school towards the end of the holiday. Check it out here.
