  2. thanks for all the ideas for the letter H :) I love how cute the house came out!

  3. These are great ideas for the letter H! My son will be in kindergarten this year, and these activities will be great for him. Thanks so much!

  4. Love your letter ideas. When I saw the house made for letter "H" it reminded me of Curious George's ABC book. In that book each letter is made into a character/item, just like the house for letter H. Look there for more letter ideas.
