Daddy was working from home today so he was able to join us for our walk. The Princess had a checkoff sheet with all the letters on it and as we found something she marked it off. Little Man was calling out all the shapes he was seeing it was hilarious as I kept trying to explain we were looking for letters not just shapes. At one point I just bent down gave him a huge hug and kiss and told him he was an expert shape finder.
I took pictures of each thing we found and I plan to bind our own ABC, A New Way of Seeing book. Here is a slide show of what we found, some you may have to look really hard or just use your imagination- lol. It wasn't until I put them in order on the blog that I realized we didn't find any N's. I guess the Princess got a little carried away checking off letters. Oh well we'll have to go out later to find an N.
This was so much fun you really have to try it. I'm going to put them into a powerpoint for the kids in the same style that Alda used in her book. I'll also put together some type of book that we can bind so the kids can go back and look at "our letter adventure"- oh maybe I'll use that for our title.
