Using the Candy Corn Alphabet Activity

To play, the kids will pull a card and place a clip on the image that matches the letter shown. Use any clips you have, but clothespins seem to work best. The kids can open and close them easily for fine motor practice.
Make them self-checking by placing a dot or sticker on the back of the card to mark the correct choice.
