Pumpkin Letter Find

When Spencer was younger I followed a bunch of teacher turned homeschooler blogs.  I printed out all of the free printables.  I spent hours cutting and laminating and re-cutting.  I had a toddler that put EVERYTHING in his mouth and I didn’t wan’t him ruining the games that I made.  I even made two cubes… Continue reading Pumpkin Letter Find
