Preschool alphabet toys for kids are here!
Ever wonder which alphabet toys will last over time?
Ones that you can pull out at two years old and continue playing with until they’re five?
I want to create an environment of forever toys and supplies that my boys can use over the next few years.
I want my preschoolers to become familiar with the lines and curves that form a letter, along with being able to toss the letters into a sensory bin (aka under the bed storage bin) for hands-on learning.
Here, you will find a detailed list of letter activities we own, trust, and love for preschoolers.
You don’t need to own a ton. Just a few ABC toys you can use in a couple of different ways over time.
ABC Toys to Help Letter Recognition
Let’s form and construct letters!
These letter activities are perfect for little hands to visualize better the lines, straights, curves, tunnels, sticks, etc., in a letter. We particularly love the construction build, as seen on number one! Construction Build is a great tool to help see letters as lines and curves and use small hand muscles to prepare pencil grip.

Alphabet Games & Books
Toys to Start Writing Letters
Since lines are made of straights and curves, your preschooler can begin exploring this with these alphabet manipulatives. My favorite is the sand tray and deck of sandpaper cards. Great for kinesthetic learners – kids that learn by touching and doing!
Alphabet Toys to Play with Letters
These alphabet supplies are excellent to keep on hand for spontaneous play. The alphabet bath toys are a fun addition to the tub and adhere to the wall with water. If you do not have a magnetic wall, try using a cookie sheet. They work great!
