At the last minute, I also laid out an Alphabet Puzzle that Ga'Ma sent us (she got it at the Dollar Tree). He went straight for that first, which worked out really well. After he completed the puzzle, Wild Thing loved exploring the sensory bin and matching letters from the bin to the puzzle.
I was amazed that it took roughly half an hour, maybe longer, for Wild Thing to decide that the cards were now cars and trains that he needed to drive all over the kitchen -- a clear sign that our alphabet sensory bin early literacy experience was a hit!! - In fact, after dinner he asked for the letters again.
