Counting Coconuts shared some great ideas for creating I SPY Jars. Check out some of her fabulous creations by clicking above.
Borrowing from her is how I made this oh-so-fun and educational letter jar.
Add a drop of food coloring to about a tablespoon of water. Stir until smooth.
Add rice and stir well.
Place dyed and damp rice onto some paper towels and allow to dry completely.
I used craft beads found HERE and added them to my rice. Then I poured them into a canning jar.
I printed out a label on sticker paper to place on the lid. It might be a FANTASTIC idea to glue the lid in place.
Next, I created a bunch of alphabet lists that I connected with a ring. Now he can circle the letters as he finds them.
By the way, big brother also loves the Letter Jar. He likes to create words with the letters he finds.
