As part of our transition to summer vacation, we went through a bit of a playroom purging recently. In addition to choosing things to donate and things to throw away, I kept a few things aside for repurposing, something I’ve had a bit of success with in the past (see here and here). This weekend, I took an incomplete set of alphabet cards and painted them with leftover chalkboard paint. Then, I let Jenna write letters on them and practice making words. She’s just starting to read, so having a batch of cards she can mix and match into a variety of words is quite a bit of fun.
