Madeline has been asking about the alphabet lately, so we’ve been doing all sorts of little haphazardly put together activities to learn letters. Fortunately, she is a girl who is easy to please.
Take today. We made letters out of Play-Doh:
Finally, we decided to make Play-Doh food that began with each letter. Let me tell you, that was hard.
A is for apple, b is for broccoli, c is for cheese. Yea yea yea. But k? K is for kalberwurst, because my girls are almost half Swiss. V is for veal parmigiana, because they are about half Italian, too. And that blob sitting on top of the n, that’s a Nilla wafer.
I am not the craftiest person in the world, nor do I have the best original ideas. Fortunately, it just takes some basic tools (i.e. Play-Doh) and a knowledge of the alphabet to have fun teaching the girls their letters.
