I also found this Melissa & Doug Alphabet Soup Bath/Pool set at Lit'l Wizards in Worthington, MN while we were visiting last weekend. Linna loves playing with all of the letters, and it's a great way to make learning FUN! For under $15, it comes with all the letters, some plastic word cards (to practice spelling as they get older), and a water-friendly bag to store everything in. Pretty good deal if you ask me!

ORIGINAL BLOG POST ON 1/14/13: I'm not going to lie. A couple weeks ago, I came across a YouTube video of a 16-month-old boy who knew all the letters in the alphabet by simply looking at them. Of course this is a very advanced child, but it got me thinking about starting ABC flash cards with Linna (now 17 months old). My husband and I downloaded an app (he actually found it) on our phones called "ABCs for Kids" (it's a free one)! Although she can't say all of the letters, she sure does give it her best. "W" is my favorite. Oh, and yes, that is yogurt all over her shirt...
