ALPHABET PRACTICE CARDS
Hey friends! Today I am excited to share these fun Alphabet Learning Cards with you! My friend has a preschooler that is learning the alphabet and wanted to make a fun activity for him to practice his letters with. He has loved the Letter Identification Printables that I have on my blog, so I wanted to come up with a similar activity, but that is a little different. Then the other day, Dylan was playing with my Cricut BrightPad and it hit me that it would be so fun to have a learning activity that is done on the BrightPad.
- Cricut Maker
- LightGrip Mat
- 12×12 White Cardstock
- Black 1.0 Marker (or whatever you have on hand)
- Cricut BrightPad
- Laminating Pouches
- Translucent Shape Blocks
- ABC BrightPad Cards A-G Design Space File
- ABC BrightPad Cards H-M Design Space File
- ABC BrightPad Cards N-T Design Space File
- ABC BrightPad Cards U-Z Design Space File
Because of the size of the project, loading time was taking forever. So, for the sake of speed, I divided the project into 4 different Design Space files! All 4 of the Design Space Files are linked above!
Start by opening a Design Space File up! You shouldn’t need to resize of change anything. I currently have it designed to fit 2 cards per 12×12 piece of White Cardstock.
Once you’re ready to Draw and Cut the cards, hit ‘Make It’ in the top right hand corner.
Depending on the Design Space file that you opened, there will either be 6 or 7 cards for the file. Review that everything looks correct, then hit ‘Continue’ in the bottom right hand corner.
Select your machine from the drop down menu and set your material to Medium Cardstock.
Load your Black Marker into Clamp A and confirm that your Fine-Point Blade is in Clamp B.
Place the 12×12 White Cardstock on the LightGrip Mat and load it in your machine. Hit the ‘C’ button on your machine to start.
It will start by drawing all the letters and lines first. Then it will cut the cards out.
I’m assuming that you’ll want these to keep for a long time, so I HIGHLY suggest running them through a laminator.
After I ran the cards through the laminator, I used my Cricut Trimmer to cut the cards back out.
Then it’s time for the fun part! Letting your little preschooler play! Pull out your BrightPad and plug it in!
The Cricut BrightPad is more known for assisting in weeding Iron On or Vinyl when creating projects. But, it really has so many more uses. My kids love to use it for tracing things and I’ve even used it to help me light up my surface when making jewelry.
Before we gave the Alphabet Learning Cards to our friends, even Dylan was having fun playing with them! She LOVED how the translucent letters lit up with the light from the BrightPad!
I also don’t have to worry about a kiddo breaking it, because the BrightPad is so durable!
Dylan also loved playing on the BrightPad with just the shapes!
Learning your letters (or anything really) is always easier when you make it fun! I wish I had a BrightPad around when my kids were younger. There could have been so many fun ways to incorporate it!
