Bottle Cap Alphabet

Bottle Cap ABC Order Free Printable via

There are many benefits of using recycled items in the classroom. This bottle cap activity will help young children develop visual discrimination skills as they match bottle caps to the correct letter. To prepare, collect 26 water bottle caps and write one letter on each cap with a permanent marker. Next, print out the alphabet sheet below.

Children can match the bottle caps to the sheet in ABC order and place the correct caps in the blanks. For children who are ready for more of a challenge, write the lowercase letters on the caps and they can practice matching uppercase to lowercase.

This activity also promotes fine motor development. Grasping each bottle cap requires children to use their thumb, index, and middle fingers together which exercises the muscles in their hands necessary for holding a pencil.
