HAVE FUN WITH LETTERS
Make block letters of each boy’s name and have them decorate the
letters with markers or other craft items.
The letters can also be made out felt or fabric and sewn or glued
with hot glue or tacky glue.
The letters can also be stuffed with batting or fiber-fill.
The boys can put them on their wall, or if it is fabric/felt they
could be placed on their bed like pillows.
