Letter Sandwiches-Works for Me Wed

Little Dude has a cute toy mail box and plastic "letters" that he just loves to give out to everyone. He will hand me the letter, and I "read" to him what I think it says, like "Hi, Mommy, I love you! Love Little Dude". Needless to say, he and I both get a big kick out of it.

But, that is pretend. There is a cool way to "write" real letters to each other! And it is so super easy you will love trying this out with your kids.

What you will need:

Alphabet cereal
slices of bread
peanut butter, jam, honey, or any other similar type spread

Cover a few slices of bread with your desired spread. Help your older toddler spell his name or a simple sentence such as "I love you" by applying the appropriate alphabet letters to his slice of bread. Younger toddlers will probably enjoy simply sticking the letters onto the bread, but you can still show them their name, Mommy, Daddy, baby, etc on your piece of bread. They will love it!

I'm off to see what my toddler is up to; it got very quiet all of a sudden.....

I came over from this is a good idea. I might try it as soon as my little girl is old enough for honey or peanut butter.
