In the meantime, I've created a few activities for us to do. I created flash cards with colors, shapes and numbers. The main point of the flash cards is for Hunter to start learning to recognize words. I made them out of index cards. They can be used for a matching game, or later on, as a memory game. I haven't given them a test run yet, but hopefully I'll be able to get Hunter to sit down at least for a few minutes at a time and play with them.
The other thing that I made for Hunter is a car ride scavenger hunt. Hunter has always been an absolute angel in the car - we've never had any problems with whining or crying etc. But, I thought that it would be good to give him something to do - a good mental workout for him. I plan to laminate it so that it lasts through more than one car ride.
We'll see how they work out. If you're interested in all of the things that I have planned for the Letter of the Week, let me know. I've put quite a bit of work into finding activities and crafts for all the letters and would love to share them with you (once I finally finish it),
