CHEEZ-IT crackers have come out with a Scrabble-Junior make of their tasty baked snack. This combines two of our favorite things in this household: CHEEZ-Its and the alphabet!

After I traced the letter I would pat the paint flat and trace it all over again. We talked about the letter “a” and words that started with it. I learned the word aardvark today, it’s a silly word and I laugh when I say it.
