How to create wooden letter disks for preschool activities:

First print off the letters. You can download my uppercase and lowercase letters here.

Next I used a 1 1/2″ circle punch to cut out my letters, but you can also use scissors!

Then I ran them through the Xyron Sticker Maker. I then stuck them onto 1 1/2″ wooden disks.

I know some people Modge Podge the disks when done, but I didn’t and they seem to be holding up fine. Well, that’s it! Super easy and fun!

Tip from the trenches: Make a couple copies of commonly used letters as some words contain more than one of the same letter, like cookie for example 🙂

Now go visit my alphabet ideas and have fun learning your letters!


  1. Just wanted to say I have recently found your site and LOVE it! Thank you so much for the great ideas to keep my preschoolers busy and learning at the same time. Also, just made some bottlecap letters. I found a set of poker chips and mod podge-ed them to the tops and they are working great. Just thought I'd share that they work nicely and can sometimes be found pretty cheap.

  2. I printed these at 55% and laminated the sheet. Now I'm in the process of cutting them out and attaching them to self-sticking 3/4" magnets which I got at Wal-Mart. I am basically making magnetic letters instead of wooden letters. The dimensions no longer work for your printables, unless you resize those, too (always a possibility!), but I am coming up with some printables that will use the magnetic letters. Awesome idea!
