Letters and Textures & Shapes (Oh, My!)!

Keeping small children entertained during the cold winter months when they can’t go outside can be a challenge. With this tutorial, you’ll use the Stitched Shapes and Large Letters Framelits to create “puzzle letters” that your children can use to make words and play matching games. The Gift Box Punch Board box doubles as a container for the letters and can be another sorting game. Customize the box and tag with your child’s initial, and you have a fun gift for a snowy day.
