    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!
