Today Aidyn decided he wanted to do some crafts. So I gave him some pre-cut heart shapes, crayons, alphabet stickers, and scribble paper, and he made a wonderful letter collage. During the activity, we talked about the different letters.
Additionally, we read one of my favorite books as a child, Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina, then Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree by Eileen Christelow, and finally Monkey Mo Goes to Sea by Diane Goode.
Afterwards, we went on a Letter Hunt/Bike Ride to the library playground. On the way, I asked Aidyn to look for letters and point them out. We found letters everywhere! When we would get close enough, I would name them out and he would repeat. He spent over an hour playing on the playground with a similar-aged boy named Jake who had brought along some toy dinosaurs. Aidyn and Jake played with sticks, scampered all around the play area, and even pretended they were monkeys, per Aidyn's suggestion.
When we got home, Aidyn went down for a nap while watching Meet the Letters.
