PLAY THE ABC NAME GAME CHALLENGE!
For Emilia's 6-month Watch Me Grow! portrait session, I wanted to create some photographs that included wood blocks that spelled out her name.
I found the ABC Photo Blocks by Pearhead online. I loved the look of this set, which consisted of nine colorful wooden blocks, each block having different letters on its six sides. I was a little concerned as to how many children's names could be spelled using just nine blocks, but I took a chance and ordered. Great decision!
Here are the blocks that were in my set:
|BLOCK||LETTERS ON EACH BLOCK|
|1||A E I L D S|
|2||A E N C I B|
|3||A J Z U O N|
|4||A N K W G V|
|5||A S M R D L|
|6||B I E P M H|
|7||C L N X F T|
|8||E O T J Q Y|
|9||H N T O R S|
Figuring out an arrangement of blocks to spell a name is a fun word game. Sometimes it's easy; sometimes, a bit harder. Obviously, any name with more than 9 letters is not possible, but fortunately those are rare! For Emilia, my initial fumbling led me to suspect that her name might not be solvable -- but, as this cute portrait of Emilia demonstrates, I ultimately succeeded.
