C is for crocodile", "M is for Mommy", etc stage. "A is for rocket"?
As luck would have it, we had a huge pile of laundry to do (see this post about the great laundry debates). I used the dryer lint as stuffing in the rocket. It didn't fill it up - we didn't have that much laundry!
Lucky it's Easter time. I actually found these eggs at the craft store.
