These are Grandma's glasses

Just like that!

  1. Hi, thanks for the ideas for the letter G. Another way that I like to use is to cut the letters out of cardboard and use them as 'currency' to buy something from a pretend shop. I give a handful of letters and then ask my son for 2 x letter G's to buy a book.
