Week in Review: Alphabet

I lined a Lego box with a felt rectangle to lessen the dice dumping.
Froglet would pick up letters and added them to his bin.
I picked up those bins, which came in a set, at Dollar Tree.

We had yucky weather, so I brought out our tunnels and "tents"

Froglet didn't want to use the hammer,
so fingers it was!
