We invited the regular crew of our immediate family, a few friends and our neighbors, and got really lucky with beautiful weather once again. We didn't really do any alphabet activities; I just used the theme in decorating and favors.
here, which worked out nicely. I sent them to Jack's school after the party so they can get more use.
these little coloring books that were personalized throughout the book (i.e., "Charlie, did you know Alligator starts with A?"). They were cuter than I expected. I also got these alphabet stencil rulers and a little sticky pad of paper with the first letter of their names. I wrapped them in craft paper and stuck a label on it (C is for Charlie; A is for Addison, etc).
