Ideas of how to use Food Font Alphabets:
Alphabet Go Fish
Print out two sets of alphabet cards (you could print one set of upper case and one set of lower case if appropriate) and deal five cards to each player. Place remaining cards in a stack face down in the middle of the table. Players check their hands for any pairs, and place them face up in front of them if they have any. The youngest player then asks a player of his choice whether he has a particular card. If he does, he must hand it over, and the pair can be placed on the table. If he doesn’t, he says “Go Fish”, and the first player must take a card from the center pile. The winner is the first player to put all their cards down on the table.
Print on heavier or cardstock paper so that the cards are not see-through. Play the traditional game of Memory, where you have to flip cards over, and find the matching pair.
Sort the alphabet
Another great way to use them is to have your child place all of the letters, on the floor, in alphabetical order. Pick either upper case or lower case and let them lay them all out in the correct order.
