Alphabet Block Spelling
I'm sure mothers have been doing this activity for a hundred years, but it just now occurred to me. M loves alphabet puzzles, and sometimes I wish we had more of them for variety sake. The other day, though, I realized that her wooden alphabet blocks could be used in much the same way.
I gathered some blank paper and a pen and wrote out a variety of letters on a page, spacing them about 2 1/2 inches apart. Then I found blocks with letters that matched and had M place them in the correct places.
Next, we decided that rather than random letter placement, we would spell words (starting with M's name, of course). M seemed to feel very grown up to be able to make her own name, and the names of each of her toy animals.

Hi! (btw- saw you at walmart and almost said hi. took me a moment to realize where I recognized your daughter from *smile*)
I am just starting this craft but am gathering some blocks.
I want to spray paint them, punch out photos, modge podge them on and add hanging string to make photo ornaments. I debated slicing them in half so they would not be so heavy but wanted to try this first.
Hi Deanna, That's so fun that you saw me at Walmart! I hope you do say hi if you see me again. Your ornament idea sounds really fun!
