Alphabet Gems and Rocks

These gems are from the dollar store that you use in vases but for this activity i used them along with some rub on letters from a scrap booking shop to make alphabet gems. So many activities these can be used for depending on the child's age. I asked Tara to help me line up the alphabet singing the A.B.C. song to remind her what comes next. Every little girl loves gems don't they???

Tara seemed to think they belong in her sand tray so she picked out one letter and placed in in the sand then she made that letter in the sand. "S"
I also made lowercase alphabet on tiny river rocks and although i don't think we will be using these yet as we are just concentrating on capitals this year I'm sure they will come in handy later on. Too cute not to make them!


  1. Loved this activity. We have a wooden alphabet puzzle that we used. Can't say that it held my son's attention for long. How long to you usually do these activities for? We did 4 activities today - sand letters, super shape puzzle (bulldozer), painting with marbles and painting with straws (blowing the paint). I think this all took a max of 40 mins doing the activities back to back. Suggestions?
