7. Alphabet Cubes
These strong and light weight cubes are easily made from recycled juice cartons. Glue the specially selected sets of letters from Section 7a, Letters For Cubes onto 16 cubes for a good range of words for many spelling and word games.

Although examples for this project are shown in black and white, why not glue on coloured letters or paint the cubes bright colours? A quick and colourful way to decorate blank white cubes is to simply dip each side of the cube, as described in the Marbling section of this site.
The photographs below show a completed set of (undecorated) alphabet cubes in a handy tray made from a cardboard carton. The numbers in the top corner of each cube in the left hand photograph are useful when storing or sorting the cubes, making sure a full set is present.
