Preschool Activity for Spring - ABC Match
I think it's safe to say that we've gotten our money's worth out of these foam flowers! They have been the perfect manipulative for J-Bug's preschool activities this spring.

Since I already had the foam flowers and the clothespins with letters, no prep time was needed for this simple preschool activity.
How to Set Up a Fine Motor Alphabet Match
