We have have a lot of work we need to do on are letters with Christian and Tylar, so I am always looking for fun ways to work on it. Over at Jennys she did it with sugar but I had a lot of flour so I did it with that. I put a little flour on a small plate for each child. Then, I showed them how to make letters in the flour and then shake the plate to erase them. The kid had a lot of fun!
