I just told Little Man random letters to make and he made them.
He had lots of fun and kept running his hands through the pile to feel them. Needless to say, they did not get added back into the candy dish!
Again, you could change this up for your needs. You could practice making shapes or numbers. You don't have to use candy corn either. You could use whatever you have on hand--M&M's, skittles, raisins, marshmellows, etc. The options are limitless.
Ahh... isn't learning fun!?
