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.
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!
