play outside: Alphabet Sandbox Treasure Hunt...could also do this as a "nature walk" activity--try to spot outdoor things that start with each letter of the alphabet. For my sis in law with new sandbox
if you write a letter to a character at disney (walt disney world communications p.o. box 10040 lake buena vista, fl 32830-0040), they will send you an autographed photo back! Could be a fun project for teaching how to write a letter!
Place upper and lowercase letters in a tub of water and ice. Provide extra lowercase vowels and common consonants like "s" and "m". You can write the letters on plastic caps like in this photo or use something you already have that's waterproof. Provide a chart or cards of children's names. Kids fish out the letters to make their names and the names of friends!
