Letters inspire play and art.

Letters are the building blocks that construct words and more. Explore traditions to play with letters to tell stories. Make your own alphabet exploration book by using different techniques to express yourself:

• Start with a letter and draw it into something else.
• Construct an elephant or a tiger.
• Use Arabic letters to wrap it into a story.
• Use stamps to grow a whole creation from letters.
After you make the book you will construct a Ro-bet: an Alphabet Block grown into a character.
