Come and Meet the Letter People!

One of the blogs I love to visit on a regular basis is No Time for Flash Cards. I never fail be inspired by the amazing ideas I find there for integrating learning into play. One of the first (and most exciting!) posts I found illustrated simple ways to bring letter learning into everyday play and wowed me with the adorable and oh-so-easy Alphabet Peg Dolls. (You can see the original post here.) They were so fantastic, in fact, that I couldn't resist making my own!

A little painter's tape, some acrylic paint, and a couple episodes of Doctor Who later, my new little friends were ready to rock and roll...and roll...and roll! (Did I mention they like to roll?)

The possibilities for play scenarios are endless. They are fantastic for letter and color recognition, pretend play, fill and spill, and I suppose even hanging up the laundry! Clever L even came up with a different way to use them:

I love these little people so much I'm looking for an excuse to make some more!


  1. Well clearly L needs Dr. Who themed ones...and Harry Potter themed ones!

  2. I was thinking the same thing myself!

  3. where do you find the pegs?
