To play the Letter Matching Game, start with only the upper case letters. Explore some of the letters with your child. Does he recognize any of them? Can he find the first letter of his name? When he is ready to play, lay out four of his favorite letters, face up. See if he can find the two letters that look the same. He can keep the cards he's matched in a pile in front of him.

The nice thing about play dough is that it's so very responsive to poking, pushing, and rolling. Its pliability is what makes it so popular with young children, and it's a wonderful introduction to working with the more resistant modeling clay. Buy the commercial stuff, or mix a batch of your own.

Play dough is not for eating. Many young children are still finding out about the world by putting things in their mouth. Your first lesson should be simple: Let's just pretend to eat it...like this!
