Alpha Bags!

As the mothers of preschoolers, we are always looking for fun ways to teach them things. One lesson that can be particularly tricky for parents is the alphabet. We found this cute idea from Lil Blue Boo for making alphabet bean bags. Her tutorial is super-easy to follow and even includes printable stencils! We figured it would be a fun way to help our kids with letter recognition. And once we told our little guys we were going to make bean bags, they were sooo excited, making them eager to play...and learn!!


The only changes we made were that we used our own stencils, as well as made our bags a little smaller.
