Dangerous alphabet for kids

Alphabet for kids - A is for ants Alphabet for kids - Letter B is for bumper cars Alphabet for kids - Letter C is for castle Alphabet for kids - Letter D is for dinosaurs

Here’s the first four letters of a dangerous alphabet for kids (well, mainly boys). I thought it would be fun to have each letter depict an amusing scenario containing a touch of violence or misfortune, nothing too serious, ants getting burnt with magnifying glasses, that sort of thing. Eventually I thought I could use the letters to create name plates or greeting cards. So if you like them give me some encouragement and I’ll persevere with the rest of the alphabet. Oh… and I’d also be happy to take suggestions for the other letters.

Now you make one

It turns out that this is also a fantastic kids activity, my son (Dylan) has really got into it. You might need to help them choose and spell the words, but after that it should keep them busy for hours, well, there are 26 letters! For further ideas and inspiration check out Dylan’s alphabet for boys.

She did a series of toys, a series of transportation vehicles, and a series of buildings(structures). I’ll try to post them on our blog soon. What are you going to do with them?
