The Alphabet Pups Baggie Game is fun, educational and fits inside a sandwich bag. This pack includes the following three games.

We easily downloaded this game pack and printed the pages on white cardstock. For extra durability you can laminatethe pages (something on my to do list).

I love these games from Me & Marie Learning and the kids have really enjoyed them as well. 

Ashley's Letter Learning Packs are packed full of wonderful resources and activities for young children. Here's a list from Me & Marie Learning of what is included in the Letter Learning Packs.

Letters, Letters, OH MY! Check out all the GREAT materials in this pack at a great price!
Label: This label is for you to use when storing the letter materials. Consider storing each letter in a different bag, file folder or notebook. Use this label to quickly identify which letter is being stored.

Large Letters: An uppercase and lowercase letter is included in the pack. Decorate these letters with the ideas given.

Letter Picture Cards: Four picture cards displaying pictures of items using the target letter of the alphabet.

Letter Poem: A great poem to read together! It is short, easy and contains pictures! Consider having your child highlight all the target letters with a highlighter. Display on the fridge or bathroom mirror and recite often!

Letter Snack and Sensory Ideas: This page of the pack contains a snack recipe focused on the target letter for you and your little one to do together. A Sensory Table idea sheet is also included giving ideas of materials you can put in your sensory tub that start with the target letter.

Letter Book: A fun, repetitive, rhyming book to create together.

Dot Paint Letters: These letters were created to be used with Dot Paints.

Letter Flipbook: A repetitive and easy to assemble flipbook focusing on the target letter. Your child will be able to help read this book with the accompanying pictures.

Letter Hunt: Search for letters in many different places! Look on food packaging, mail, magazines and newspapers for the target letter. Then, glue the letters you found on this Letter Hunt sheet.

Letter Puzzles: Mix up and piece the letters back together! Letter Lacing: Get out the string or yarn for lacing fun! To prepare, hole punch each gray dot on the uppercase and lowercase letters. Have your child lace around each letter going in and out of each hole.

Letter Size Up: Help your little one order the capital letters by size. Letter Sort: Sort the target letter by lowercase or uppercase. Use the sorting mat included.

Letter Writing: Pre-writing and letter writing practice page. Start at the top of the page and help your child practice the strokes needed to form the target letter. Once he or she has mastered the strokes, move on to tracing the letters. After your child shows confidence in tracing the letters, have them create their own letters using the last line of the page.

Letter Match Up: Practice matching uppercase to lowercase with this fun game.

Puppet: Make a puppet to focus on the target letter. Follow the directions on the puppet page to create.

 Here's a look inside the Letter Cc and Letter Ii Learning Packs that we received.

We printed most of these pages on white cardstock(the ones that would be reused). We've also laminatedseveral items to help them last even longer.

Emahry has really enjoyed these sets, she especially likes all the colorful pieces. Jonathan's favorite activities right now are the do-a-dot pages.

I love the baggie games. What a great idea. We are going on a road trip this summer and that sounds like a perfect take-a-long.

BTW, thanks for introducing me to Me&Marie. I didn't know about it before and it looks like it could really help with my homeschool preschool.
