Today, we celebrate ALPHABET COOKIE CUTTERS, those wonderful metal or plastic widgets that can turn snack time into learning moments.
Before passing out that cookie, let's see who can name an animal, or a place, or a person whose name starts with that letter.
Turn that W cookie upside down. What letter do you see? Now bite a little piece of it--it's an N!
Are you a design-savvy parent with a membership to the MOMA? Then make Helvetica font cookies. Teach your children how to spell Mies van der Rohe.
Not in the mood for cookies? There are molds for ice. Teach your kids how to spell 'MELT' and watch it happen. (Hint: Put those ice letters under a lamp or it will be a lo-o-o-ong lesson.)
