    what a fabulous idea for preschoolers – I am going to start this for my 5 yr twins. They love cutting out too.

    If you have the same word twice (on one pack or on different packs), you could leave one whole and cut up the other one. See if she can rearrange the letters to match the whole one, like a jigsaw.

    You could glue magnet paper on the back of the letters…homemade fridge magnets or use them on a cookie sheet.

    We just started this! Brilliant idea. Didn’t say anything to the kids, just forgot to clear them up in my multi tasking mood. Kids were off clearing up the toys and found them making words and none of the toys cleared up. Couldn’t be mad. We’re keeping ours in a recycled glass jar. The letters aren’t staying in the jar long.
    Thanks i was hoping to use it for spelling fun. Kids have other ideas and that’s great!
