  • Hi Beth! I love your hot chocolate and marshmallow idea! For the life of me, I can not print it out though or download it. Are you able to help me with this?

    • Happy to help! Scroll to the bottom of post, under terms of use, and click on the TEXT LINK that looks like >> Download ___ <<. It will open in a new window as a PDF document for you to easily print and/or save. Enjoy!

  • I love this hands on activity. I am concerned that mine possibly didn’t print correctly. I do not have four pictures for every letter, on a few letters I only have one or two picture cards. Can you help with this?
