Today was brought to you by the letter â€œPâ€ and the letter â€œMâ€!Â We registered for the summer reading program at our local library, and this week is â€œKnow Your Lettersâ€ week.Â One of the suggested at home activities was to have a letter day and do things, eat things and say things that start with that letter.Â We chose â€œPâ€ for Paige, and â€œMâ€ for Maddie.
When we got home we made letter decorations for our special letter dinner.Â We also used some alphabet pasta to create â€œMâ€ and â€œPâ€ words by gluing them on construction paper.Â At least that was the idea.Â Maddie, who is 3, was more interested in random glue and paste 🙂
The highlight of letter day was our special letter dinner.Â We had a great time planning our menu and looking around the grocery store for foods that began with our letters.Â Paige is 5 and just learning to read, so this activity was right up her alley.Â For â€œPâ€ we had pizza, papaya and peaches.
For â€œMâ€ we had macaroni with mushrooms and meatballs, chocolate mousse, muffins, and mangoes.
It was MARVELOUS, we kept saying â€œMMMmmmmâ€.Â A good time was had by all!
The girls both drew a picture about our letter day in their reading club journals, and took them to the library to show the librarian and get their weekly stamp, and of course some new books!
I think a letter day is a great no special occasion party, try it!
