Got any party blowers lying around the house?  Let's put it to use.  If you don't have a fun party blower, then you can use a wooden spoon, a magic wand, or maybe even a toy backhoe truck.

Lay out alphabet letters.  I used our magnetic plastic letters, but use whatever you have on hand.  You could even just print out or write the alphabet on paper and cut them into squares.  Place a piece of double side tape on each letter, or wrap each letter with tape so it's sticky side-out.
Letter Sounds:  Ask your child to flip out her party blower like a froggie and catch the letter of the sound you make.  "Catch the letter that says 'buh'"
Letter Starts:  Ask your child to use her wand to find the beginning letter of a word.  "What's the first sound/letter in BUBBLE?"  Of course, you can practice middle and ending sounds of words.
Spelling:  "Spell the word BOX" and have your child capture each letter with her wooden spoon to try to spell out a word.
