ABC Santa

Monday night is “Pet Night” with Santa at our local mall! Olivia is very excited to go to the mall tonight with Pepper to go see Santa!  To prepare for her big night, we made a picture of Santa and covered his beard with ABCs.

I started by finding a Santa coloring page online. http://printablecolouringpages.co.uk/?s=SAnta  I then covered his beard with 1″ circles. Here is a link to the document – santa-abcs.


Next, I wrote letters onto red and green circle stickers.  (I did these steps while Olivia was sleeping last night.)

Olivia had fun matching the stickers to the letter circles on his beard.  Before sticking them to his beard, she identified each letter, and told me a word that started with that letter. She had a great idea as she was working! She asked if she could add the extra letters to Santa’s hat.


There are many other ways that you can use this matching activity. Instead of matching capital letters, you could have your child match:

  • Lowercase to lowercase
  • Capital to lowercase
  • Sight words
  • Colors
  • Shapes
  • Numbers
  • Addition/subtraction facts to solution
