the alphabet train

Blues Clues DVDs have a special place in our heart. My two small boys love Joe and Blue and I love that I can make dinner in general peace. Win-win.

One of our favorite episodes involves the alphabet. Joe and company make a fantastic alphabet train and close the epi. with a catchy song that we all sing with energy and goofy verve.

My 5 year old told me he wanted an alphabet train. So I set to it. It took me a while, everything was made free-hand.

For those unfamiliar with Blues Clues (and the alphabet train), you can watch a clip of the song/video right here. Watch it multiple times so you can get the song stuck in your head! 😛

Onto the letters!
