Outdoor Matters highly recommends the alphabet and number pebbles, and the squidgy sparkle letters.
The pebbles are made from resin and stone and engraved with lower case letters or with numbers from 1-20. They are tactile and very attractive to young children since they look and feel and like the real thing. They are durable can be used anywhere outdoors, including in earth, sand or water.
The squidgy sparkle letters are non-toxic and can withstand hot and cold temperatures -they can even be frozen. They make a great addition to outdoor water play resources.
