Each wooden box comes with eight two-sided boards. Each board has a picture along with the accompanying three or four letter word. Kids find the right lowercase letter to fit into each letter shape to spell the word. This set includes the entire alphabet of lowercase letters, with multiples of each letter so kids can complete more than one word at a time.

The wooden box keeps all the pieces contained.

We started using this kit when my first child was four for a toy during his quiet time. Now I use it for my third child when his older siblings practice their spelling while we all sit stuck at home. But all three of my kids enjoy finding the letters and picking the word boards to “help” their brother while he plays.

You can use the included letters in a variety of ways.

You can also use the colorful wooden letters in a variety of other ways. Have your child spell their name, trace the letters with a pencil or a boogie drawing board, or get older kids to write the corresponding uppercase letter from the lowercase letter they choose randomly. No matter how you choose to use all the pieces, your kids will learn a lot when this set makes it fun.
