Busy Bag: Pegboard Letters

This bag is really built around a great "toy" that I suggest buying.  I picked these up at a teacher store years ago, and they have provided hours of building entertainment for Theodore and now Eli.  Ours are similar to these Stacking Pegs, and could be used to work on colors, patterns, or just developing fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

Because of his interest in letters this last year, we decided to make this into an alphabet activity to extend the use of this toy for Theo.  I used illuminations dynamic paper, and created a dot template that we printed out.  Then we drew most of the letters (not all worked with straight lines) on the templates.  Theo watched me draw and "okayed" all the templates and agreed on the letters they represented.  We'll see how Theo likes this new task.
