Alphabet ideas!?

Question:I am going to create a scrapbook out of pages with the letters of the alphabet and things colored, glued, painted or stamped on them. I will be gluing red ribbon on a letter "R" for instance. I need ideas for small objects that begin with the following letters,
e, j, i, l, o, q, u, v, x, z,

I am also going to fill a basket with small objects that begin with these letters, I will have a small bag of acorns, some apples and such in a basket on the day we learn about the letter "A". I need ideas on things around the house and inexpensive items to fill my basket with each day, for all letters.

We will be reading a storybook each day that contains something that begins with our letter of the day.

I will be teaching a homeschooled co-op group and time is limited as is their attention span so nothing incredibly tedious or time consuming.

Thanks so much!!

Just a quick brainstorm. I hope it helps.

For your scrapbook pages:
E - have a grey construction paper elephant body, let kids glue on ears, trunk and tail
J - get a bag of "jewels" from the craft store
I - Ice cream cone shape, and glue different colored "scoops"
L - lion body, let them glue on a brown yarn mane and tail
O - use orange slices to stamp their shape with orange paint
Q - copy some simply quiltblocks to fit several on your page, let them use markers to color them in
U - have a construction paper umbrella and raindrops to glue on the page
V - Violin shape, glue on fishing string
X - a skeleton to glue on the page would probably be a big hit, then cover it with a piece of plastic wrap and a black frame - call it an X-ray
Z - Outline of a zebra, let them add the strips with markers or paint

Have fun with the class, sounds great.
Lady i ain't here to be mean or anything, but your not nice! I asked for you advice and that was when i was in a bad mood, people do/say things they don't mean when their in a bad mood and he would quit school and he does love me and you can throw anything at me, but i love this man with a deep passion and he loves me to, to have been with me for 13 months i'd hope he loved me, you wouldn't understand my situation unless you were in my shoes, so stop judging a person you don't know, but thank you for your opinion
