Learning about rainbows is such a fun experience when you’re in preschool.
Learning the various colors that make up a rainbow, the order they go in, which colors you can mix together to make new colors…
The possibilities are endless as are the opportunities to work in a few other basic skills while you’re learning about them.
These rainbow alphabet puzzles are the perfect example!
Letter Matching Rainbow Puzzles
While you can obviously work on the colors of the rainbow and their order, you can also use them to work on both the upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet and matching them together.
Just like our rainbow number puzzles, they separate into two pieces, that are large enough for small hands, and easy to cut.

Included in this printable set, you’ll find 26 rainbow alphabet puzzles, one for each letter of the alphabet.
Just print them out, cut them into two pieces, and laminate for durability.
They would make a fantastic busy bag or literacy center. They’d even work perfectly as a quiet activity for early finishers!
If your child isn’t ready for all 26 letters just yet, try picking out a few at a time (the letters in their name would be a fantastic place to start) and start with those.
Once they’ve mastered the few that you picked out, add a few more at a time until they’ve gotten them all figured out.
Just remember that these puzzles are not self-correcting so if your child is just beginning to learn their letters, they may need a little bit of help in identifying which letters go together.
Before too long though, they’ll be matching their upper and lowercase letters like a pro!
