Today we are taking part in the Name Recognition & Writing Activities blog hop organised by Carla. We chose to use lego bricks as we love them and they have so many uses. We have a homemade lego table which is perfect for building and we used it for some simple letter recognition play today.

His younger sister wanted to play too. She has been learning letters at nursery so we stuck to something simple. I drew the first letter of her name on a sheet of paper and let her choose a colour of bricks to place inside the letter.
