I had picked up a packet of 10 sheets of letter stickers at the new Staples store down the street, on what was easily THE most irritating shopping experience of the century (half an hour to buy a ream of paper, two pens, and aforementioned stickers). Didn't really have a plan for them at the time, but realizing that Bella is starting to have half a clue about letters, the other night we tried the thing above - I'd make a drawing, write out the word, and she would search for the letters that matched. Mik got into the action too (hence the Swedish), and Bella ended up sticking with it for a whole 10 minutes. I think she mostly wanted to see what strange perversion of an animal drawing we could come up with next (Mik's tree definitely wins the award for Most Surreal).
