Alphabet Garden

I was trying to come up with an idea that would intrigue my toddler into learning the alphabet. I came up with a alphabet garden. This way we can rearrange the letters and learn to spell new words.

To begin I painted and glossed a wooden alphabet set. 20120907-115353.jpg
Then I used a hot glue gun to attach each letter to a wooden skewer stick.

I added the dirt. I chose to use brown gift stuffing which comes in almost any color you can think of. I just placed a bags worth around using enough to fill box and cover the floral foam.20120907-115422.jpg

Insert all of the letters into your garden and watch your child’s mind grow!20120907-115428.jpg
