This week I’m going to post about some of the things I use and love for parties. And then you get to choose your own giveaway prize.

Day 4: silicone alphabet letter molds. I first bought my alphabet letter molds to make these crayon party favors.

Since then I have used them for everything from ice to chocolate numbers (oh yeah, I have the number molds too). These trays do way more than the shaped ice cube trays you see at the store. They can be heated up in the oven and frozen in the freezer. On my kids’ first day of school I made number ice and put their new grade number in their glass of water. They loved it. And for my newsletter I used the number mold to make chocolate numbers to put on a cake that counts up to the birthday child’s age.

Anyway. When I told the guys at Sillycone that I used their number mold in my newsletter, they sent me some free alphabet molds. So really, whether you want one of these or not, I’ll send a set of the alphabet letter molds to the winner. But believe me, you’ll want one. And it looks like there is free shipping going on right now over at Sillycone if you want to buy some letters or numbers.

These Alphabet Letter Trays from Sillycone are also an eligible item for the giveaway. If you win you can choose any item you’d like from everything that I’m featuring this week. You can enter on any of the posts. One entry per person. Just leave a comment and a valid email address to contact you at when you win. This giveaway will close at Midnight on Friday, July 16th and I’ll post the winner on Saturday or Monday.

Day 4: you can choose an alphabet letter mold set from Sillycone.
