Make a Letter-Learning Bottle

To make a letter bottle, fill a small, clean plastic bottle with corn syrup and add colorful letter confetti (at party stores) and a couple of marbles, which help keep the letters from clumping up. Secure the cap with Gorilla Glue to ensure it stays on permanently. Having this cool-looking bottle on hand for when your child sits down to practice writing letters may spark his or her imagination.
