I took all the alphabet pieces from the box I bought yesterday and coloured them on one side with Sharpies (a gift from DD Leanne years ago).
(As usual, I didn't think to put rubber gloves on until after my fingers were stained red...but, oh, well...)
Letters are 1 1/8" tall. The original idea was to have all the vowels red but as I coloured them all, that didn't always hold true.
Took a long time to do and I'm hoping that it will be fun for her, Mom and Dad, to play with.
