Happy Friday: Homemade Miniature ABC Boxes
Sent from reader, Carolyn:
I put together these miniature ABC boxes for my daughter. She loves them. She learns and then gets to play with them. Each box contains miniature objects that start with respective letter. This is great to learn: letter recognition, letter sounds, letter tracing, colors of objects, shapes of objects, textures, etc. So it’s sensory learning too.
I purchased the mini containers from Dollar Tree (pack of 10). The objects are from Dollar Tree, craft stores, yard sales, consignment sales, random house items, etc. I use a lot of erasers, like the Dollar Spot ones at Target. I try not to spend more than $0.25 per object. Sometimes I can get them as cheap as $0.01. Every container has multiple objects.
I started making these as gift sets for children of close friends and have gotten positive feedback. These sets are becoming my signature gifts. Great for showers, birthdays and Christmas.
