Lace & Link Lowercase Letters – My Fathers World
Big 4" letters each come in their own linking puzzle frame. Hop, skip, and jump
on these durable, washable letters. Lace them to reinforce letter shapes.
Includes 10 laces, suggested activity sheet all in a handy plastic tub.
AK Testimonial - “If you are looking to teach your kids about letters, reading,
vowels, or consonants, this is a great learning tool. This is one of the first
lower case learning aids available. There are many games we play, but our
favorite is taking the letters and scattering them around the house. I give
them a hint about which letter (or word) I want them to find and off they go.
Not only do they learn, they get their energy out while searching for each
letter. As they go up and down the stairs and around the house, I can spend
one-on-one time helping my oldest with her school work. By the time all the
letters are found, they are tired and everyone is happy.”

your vehicle or upon returning to the vehicle. Specifically designed for
children, this colorful magnet placed on the side of your vehicle is sure to be
a helpful aid and a big hit with your children.
AK Testimonial: “This is a great aid to teach young kids to stay by the car
while loading and unloading in a parking lot. Parking Pal is a colorful magnet
that you put on your car. Kids learn to put their hand on the Parking Pal
anytime they are beside the car. It is very helpful for little ones that like
to run away as soon as they hit the pavement.”
