    Hang them on the wall like in a classroom. Sing them. Flashcards.

    Sesame street videos, alphabet books, super why.... 

    Or do you mean writing her alphabet...  I got my 3yo a whiteboard tracing board. He also has a tracing app on my kindle he really likes. 

    ABCMouse.com, he LOVES ABCmouse!

    I tried ABC mouse and my daughter didn't take to it very well. She's not good with using a mouse to click things

    Oh, and I forgot. You have to get involved if you go the video/show/website thing. When I was just letting him passively watch all that he got nothing out of it. But getting involved, he not only learned them like *that*... my 20month old also can sing her abcs already because she sees how excited me and her brother get singing and pointing at letters.
