a while back, i wrote about how i transformed a little foam alphabet puzzle into stamps and a bulletin board. the reason was that apparently that type of plastic contains substances which are hazardous to your health. i don’t know if it’s really true or not, because i keep seeing these puzzles for sale in stores. but anyway ours was in pretty awful shape because our cat could just not resist scratching it. so i had decided to make a big bulletin board with it directly onto the wall. i don’t know why i didn’t do it sooner (it took me about a year and a half from when i’d decided) because it only took about 2 minutes and a few nails. i tried to lay out the colors how i liked and i only realized the next day that i’d written a word within it: “day.” actually, it says “w-day,” which always makes me think of “D-Day” from the second world war. not exactly the most uplifting thing. oh, but whatever. my daughter still can’t read words. and she still doesn’t know anything about wars, lucky her!
we pinned up a drawing to test it out, but she likes it more empty. that way she can still remove the letters and play with them. and she can read the letters, which she likes. that drawing was made from a book that i really love and will write about soon!
