I was recently at Dollar Tree and happened to look through the school/office section. I didn't expect to find anything exciting mid-year, but I found these adorable classroom decorations and immediately knew what I wanted to use them for.
Super Tot and I are working a lot on learning the alphabet right now, so I thought doing an uppercase/lowercase letter match with them would be perfect. I didn't want 26 (x2) pieces spread out all over, so I decided to make them attach to each other when he matches them. Here is a simple tutorial for what I did.
I present these to Super Tot in two bowls - one with the worms and one with the apples. He lays out all the apples (uppercase) and places the correct worm (lowercase) in each one.
I also purchased a second set with frogs and lily pads, which I intend to use for something similar. Additionally, I have enough of the apples and worms left to do numbers 1-10, which I am excited about, too!
