I have two Ziplock bags of small foam letters in my craft closet. Trip found one of them the other day and wanted to play with the letters. I foresaw a huge mess, but figured it was nothing that couldn't be cleaned up, so I let him open the bag. Of course, the letters were immediately scattered all over the floor. After a quick lesson in not eating the letters, he started pushing them around and looking at them.
He also enjoyed putting them in a bowl,
and dumping them back out.
Mommy had some fun making words,
until some little feet decided to step on them.
