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"
