Feed Me Beginning Sounds Crayon Activity for Back to School
This feed me beginning sounds crayon activity is a fun way for children in preschool or kindergarten to learn letters and the sounds they make!
Ever since they were very young, my kids have loved feed the animal activities. Like that time we did this feed the bear alphabet activity and this super cute feed the turkey counting activity. It seems my kids enjoy learning any skill when they get to pretend to feed something. Haha.
Seriously though, there is something very motivational about being able to feed the animal or object something. It seems so simple, but it really makes learning these skills so much fun.
I thought it would be awesome if I could make printable versions that would make it super easy for all of my readers to do this kind of activity with the kids they teach.
Thankfully, I came across some super cute clipart sets that work perfectly for this.
This particular theme is perfect for back to school season. Kids are already so excited about school supplies and art materials, so this capitalizes on that excitement.
Beginning Sounds Crayon Activity
For this feed me activity, students will feed crayons to the crayon box. My kids thought this was so funny.
There are letter cards that show “Feed me something that starts with the letter” and then a letter of the alphabet follows. There are uppercase cards and lowercase cards included.
There will be crayon cards laid out on the table. Each crayon card has a picture of something on it. Each picture starts with a certain letter in the alphabet.
Students will pull a letter card from the pile. Then they will look for a crayon card that has a picture of an object that starts with that letter.
For example, if a students pulls a letter card that says “Feed me something that starts with the letter F,” students will look at the crayon cards and find the one that has a picture of a fish on it. This is because fish starts with the same sound that F makes. Then they will feed the fish crayon to the crayon box.
This continues until they run out of letter cards.
Feed Me Letter Sounds
This game can be played independently or in pairs. It would be perfect for literacy centers, morning tubs or even at home with your kids.

- A cube shaped tissue box
You will probably want to laminate the letter cards, crayon cards and crayon box for durability.
One thing you can do to cut down on space is to just use one or two different tissue boxes and just change out the object or animal that is being fed.
This is where laminating helps. I just roll up some scotch tape and use it to adhere the face to the tissue box. When the face is laminated it is fairly easy to peel off the tissue box so it can be reused.
I have found that after a while the tissue box begins to deteriorate from peeling the tape off over and over. I am thinking about using sticky back velcro to attach them to the box and make it easier to swap them out.
Once you have the tissue box set up and the cards cut out and laminated, it is ready to be used. Your students are sure to have a blast feeding the crayon box while learning beginning sounds!
Stay tuned for more versions that will help you teach lots of different skills.
