Letter Hunt:  Your letter bucket is filled with dogs, ducks, deer, dinosaurs, dragons, dolls, dice, etc.

Fine Motor:  Doughy D's 

Let your smartypants develop their fine motor skills by rolling playdough into the letter D.  What else can they make with the playdough?  A diamond?  Maybe a dinosaur?
