We are reviewing the alphabet this month and I thought it would be fun for Ella to make her own alphabet blocks. I bought photo cubes (in the scrapbook aisle of Michael's) to use for this project. For each letter of the alphabet, Ella affixes an alphabet sticker and draws a picture of something that begins with that sound. I add the word for her because the print needs to be small.

I'm not usually attracted to plastic toys - but there are exceptions . . . I love Mr. Potato Head. There is something really cool about all of the possibilities that those funny bulbous bodies and all of their limbs offer. Today, Ella and I dumped out the Mr. Potato Head bucket and had fun sorting and counting body parts before we started a Mr. Potato Head assembly line.

I ran into the Dollar Tree for a tablecloth and came upon these cute wooden plaques with ribbons attached for hanging.
