Letter M: Alphabet Activities for Kids

Updated on February 24, 2014

From monkey mazes to mouse mayhem, we explored a lot of Letter M words for our latest alphabet activities!

Unfortunately, the morning of Letter M Day was also the day I dropped my camera. For the last time. All of these photos were taken with my cell phone, and I didn't realize how bad the lighting was until later. So, not the prettiest of photos, but you can still see what we did.

As always, there are plenty of construction paper crafts, free worksheets, letter videos, and ideas for meals and snacks.

Alphabet Food and Snacks

These foods are a fun way to incorporate letters into any Alphabet Activity Day! You could serve them the way they are, and make a game of finding the letter you're focusing on. Or you could be all OCD like me, and actually separate out all the As, Bs, and Cs, etc., put them in little baggies and only serve one letter at a time, to help strengthen recognition.

To help keep all of our projects and worksheets together in one place, I purchased a binder to put everything in, separated by letter.

This is my daughter pasting a construction paper M onto the M page of dividers. We did this first, and then, as always, added our projects as the day went on.

M is for Monkey

For our giant letter project, we made a monkey. I had pre-cut the face, hands, and tail, and she glued it all together.

M is for Music and Mountains Under the Moon

This paper project was a little different then what we normally do, but I thought the combination of M words worked quite nicely. It was inspired by the mice in the moonlight.

For our letter sorting activity, I provided two mice and some uppercase and lowercase Ms that were cut to resemble cheese.

M is for M&Ms

My kids love M&Ms. Love them. So I just had to find a way to work them into M Day.

This is a color matching activity. Give 'em a bowl of M&Ms and see how many they can match before eating them. Or, if they have younger siblings, how many they can match before their little sister tries to "help" by chucking handfuls of candy on the paper. Either way.

M if for M&M Counting

This one is a pattern activity. I kept it pretty basic because my preschooler hadn't done too many of these yet. But, even if your kids has, it's still good practice.

And you get to eat the pattern, so, really, you can't beat that.

M is for Marshmallows

Another food-based activity. She did cheerfully fill the M with marshmallows before trying to eat them all. But I'm still a little surprised we didn't all end up in a sugar coma. Probably helped that I only gave them just enough candy to do the activities.

This activity involves circling the Ms.

And, apparently, the mermaid, because she starts with M, and the J because it was funny. :)
