ABC Book: Letter A


Here are a few flashback photos from earlier in the year when Blonde Warrior was learning letter "A."  Although it is the first letter of the alphabet, it was the THIRD letter that I introduced.


He made apple prints on his "A" page with an apple half and finger paint.  The key to getting a good print with an apple is to cut the apple in half vertically to expose the seeds and stem and then let it sit to dry out for a few hours.  If you try and apply paint to a freshly cut apple, the natural juices will repel the paint.



If you are just joining us and have missed the previous ABC book posts, head on over and check out Letter "I."
