We made the letter Y with yellow pipe cleaners.
I got this idea from Counting Coconuts.

Our failed Y is for Yarn craft project. The idea was to make "balls of yarn" with playdoh and yarn but it didn't stick at all! Oh well, it was a cute idea anyway. :)

I don't remember what was so funny but I love this picture! :)

Y is for Yogurt snacktime.

I didn't get many pictures of her playing this week. In this picture she was playing with her letter magnets and a cake pan. Her favorite part was how loud it was when she dumped the letters out and threw the pan on the floor ;)
